=
1. In this challenge our team had to watch our patient’s video which was Sam Anchor.

2. One thing in our group that was successful was when we found out what disease our patient had.

3. What didn’t work out as well was figuring out who in our team would do what.

4. Our research helped our team diagnose our patient by making it easier to find which disease our patient had.

5. The best part of the whole project was working with different people on different assignments. This is a great project because if you want to complete this project you need teamwork and with teamwork you need to work together. The directions could be less complicated and easier to follow.

· These cells send messages in the form of tiny electrical signals to other body cells through pathways called nerves.
· A human brain has three main parts. The cerebrum is responsible for speech. The second part of the brain is the brain stem.The third part of the brain is the spinal cord.
· The spinal cord stretches about two-thirds of the way down the backbone. The brain gets most of its messages from the spinal cord. The spinal cord also sends messages from the brain around the body.
