The Nervous System

  • S. H. Aharinejad

Abstract

The vertebrate central nervous system cannot store significant amounts of energy and thus continuous supply with nutrients and oxygen via the blood vascular system is indispensable. Situations which slow down or stop this supply lead to transient or permanent impairment of brain function. In vertebrate phylogeny, brain morphology changes significantly from cyclostomes to man. According to current concepts, the functional differentiation of distinct brain regions parallels this process and enables the animal to adapt to individual needs. Changes in brain anatomy both during ontogeny [1] and phylogeny correlate with changes in its blood vascular supply.
