You have nerves all over your body which have a very important job. They carry messages (signals) from your brain to all the different parts of your body, that allow us to do different things.
The whole network of nerves in your body is called your nervous system.
Your nervous system allows you to do many things – to store information, send out instructions to your body, have feelings, to think and breathe without thinking and much more.
They are busy working around the clock to allow your body to do lots of different things at the same time.

Nerve messages whizzing from our brain can travel as fast as 170 miles per hour!
