Dear Student

In human beings, the nervous system controls the various functions by small units called neurons. Neurons receive the information through sensory nerves and transfer them through motor nerves. Whereas, hormones coordinate the activities and growth of the body. Important functions like sugar level metabolism, growth and development etc. are controlled by hormones secreted by endocrine glands. Hence, in human beings, hormones show long lasting responses. The action of hormones is highly specific.

Thanks
