DevelcpmerJ-s exceed, in A nerve Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Robert Smith, age 9, of Trumbull, Connecticut, for his question: What exactly Is a nerve? When you stub your big toe, chances are you yelp than you can blink. This happens because a team of fine threads reported the crash and flashed back a pain signal. One Iliread was the longest nerve in your body. It reaches all the from your big toe to the bottom end of your backbone. A team of other nerves helped to relay the report to headquarters and bring back the OUCH signal. And the network of nerves did all this before you had time to think. I, t Nerves are living cells tbat scientists cell neurons You have at least 100 billion of them and your body could not possibly get along without them. They are embedded in the skin and flesh, Uie bones and muscles and in all the inside organs. These nerve cells come in nerves are linked together in the orderly nervous system. The zillions of hits of news they gather are sent to headquar- ters. This may be ths brain in your skull or the spinal cord inside your backbone. The brain is a brilliant computer made entirely of special nerve cells. They are stationed in groups to cope with message from this or that part of the body and there are special centers to compare the news from all over. Nerves flash endless little news items and the teams of brain cells cope with them m a jiffy. They sort, compare, de- cide what to do and flash sensi blc orders to this or that part of Ihe body. They do a lot of this work without bothering you to make you think about it. When you rtub a toe, sensory nerves flash the news to head- quarters and motor nerves flash back the pain signal. There are sensitive sensory nerves in every' patch of skin. Their skinny fingers know when you touch something hot or different shapes and sizes be-j cold, rough or smooth, wet, dry cause each has a special duty.' Most of them are more or less linked together in teams to re- lay news events to the brain and flash back orders. Most nerve cells are shaped like miniature kites with long skinny strings. Some of the kites have several painted cur- ners that spread out branches of skinny fingers. The long skin- ny tail of a kite may end in a tulted brush of skinny little fingers. The branching threads on other nerve types are short or medium long. Another type has a miniature bulb at the end of its very-long, very-thin thread. The shape of a nerve cell helps it to do its special duties. Nerves in your legs at- lenc fro. to leg messages, to and nerves in your hands at- tend to hand messages and so on. All these 30 billion or so or Other nerves in the team help to relay these news items to headquarters. The brain relays its orders back through teams cf motor nerves. Their skinny fingers prod mus- cles and other parts of the body to carry cut the orders. Special in-between nerves help to shut- tle signals across gaps in the relay system. All the nerves work together like a super-duper miniature telephone system. A telephone uses electric power to flash sig- nals through wires. A nerve also flashes electric signals. Its little kite is the cell body that uses food to keep it in working order. chemicals in the surrounding cells provide the electricity7. The nerve fibers j flash the signals along to and fro, faster than you can blink. some ways, even your most modern theories. Moving with the spirit ot the times gives you something extra to do.
