Which of the following is NOT a function of the nervous system?
The nervous system serves several important functions. It obtains data from the internal and external environment (in part through the sensory organs), and processes and integrates the collected information. Finally, it sends signals to activate glands and muscles to create an appropriate reaction. While the nervous system does exert some control over the production of hormones, as it does most other aspects of bodily functions, the glands that produce those hormones are not considered part of the nervous system, but rather comprise the endocrine system.
