Yes: Multiple sclerosis (ms) is an autoimmune disease (body's defense system attacking itself) that involves the central nervous system. Central nervous is composed of the brain and spinal cord. Myelin sheaths protect and insulate nerve cells; in ms the myelin sheaths on the axons (longer parts of the nerve cells) are inflamed and damaged, leading to scar development seen in white matter of the brain. ...Read more

I'm wondering why are cranial nerves not included in the central nervous system?

Mostly peripheral: Cranial nerves have their cell bodies within the central nervous system (cns), but the majority of their length/"processes" are outside the confines of the cns. The myelin covering nerves inside, vs. Outside, the CNS is different, and cranial nerves are subject to disorders common to peripheral nerves. (the cell bodies can be affected by CNS disorders as well.). ...Read more

How can heroin affect the central nervous system?

How can  heroin affect the central nervous system?

Very complex: Heroin (diacetylmorphine) is converted to morphine in the brain & attaches to mu opioid receptors. In the medulla it depresses breathing. In ventral tegmental area (vta) it reduces gaba. By inhibiting this inhibitor, opiates increase the amount of da released (the reward neurotransmitter) by the vta into the nucleus accumbens of the basal ganglia, which is a major pleasure center of the brain. ...Read more
