Somatic Nervous System

The somatic nervous system “maintains communication between the CNS and the outside world”. The somatic nervous system is made up of sensory receptors that carry information to the spinal cord and brain, and motor pathways that allow the brain to control movement. Therefore, the role of the somatic nervous system is to carry sensory information from the outside world to the brain and provide muscle responses via the motor pathways.
