Dr. Arthur Hoffman answered

Just that: The division of your nervous system into central & peripheral is based on anatomy, not physiology. . The brain & spinal cord make up the central; the continuation from these two make up the peripheral. But they are continuous. The ''third" nervous system regulates the function of your remaining organ systems, from bowel to cardiovascular & everything in between. Maintains balance.
