Your brain stays in touch with your body through nerves. This network is called your peripheral nervous system, and it has two major parts. One controls the things you don’t have to think about, like your heartbeat or digestion (autonomic nervous system). The other (somatic nervous system) connects your senses to your brain and lets you move your muscles.
