Computing and Network Services: the service organization charged with maintaining the central computers, their operating systems, the campus backbone network, the public computing laboratories, and their supporting local area networks, and to provide some user support in the form of training and consulting
CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. The central nervous system is composed of the brain, spinal cord, and the meninges (protective membranes surrounding them). Although HIV infects monocytes and macrophages, they appear to be relatively resistant to killing. These cells travel throughout the body and carry HIV to various organs, especially the lungs and the brain. Persons living with HIV often experience abnormalities in the central nervous system. Investigators have hypothesized that an accumulation of HIV in brain and nerve cells or the inappropriate release of cytokines or toxic byproducts of these cells may be to blame for the neurological manifestations of HIV disease.
Central nervous system. The part of the nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord to which sensory and motor information is transmitted, coordinating activity of the entire nervous system.
Central nervous system. the brain and spinal cord, the part of the nervous system that receives sensory impulses and transmits motor (movement) impulses. The CNS keeps us in touch with the world outside while controlling our conscious and unconscious activities.
Central nervous system. The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord. The central nervous system works together with the peripheral nervous system, which consists of all the nerves that carry signals between the CNS and the rest of the body.
Central Nervous System. The brain and the spinal cord. This term distinguishes these portions of the nervous system from the vast network of peripheral nerves that emerge from the brain and spinal cord.
Central Nervous System. Consists of the brain and spinal cord. The CNS processes information to and from the peripheral nervous system, and is the main network of coordination and control for the entire body.
Central nervous system. the portion of the vertebrate nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord. It controls the motions and workings of the body by sending signals to various body parts, receiving sensory and functional information from them, and processing the information.
Central Nervous System. the collection of neurons and parts of neurons that are contained within the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates, or within the brain, ventral nerve cord, and major ganglia of invertebrates
(Communications, Navigation, Surveillance) Communications, navigation and surveillance systems are the three main technical service areas in air traffic control. More than 200 skyguide technicians and engineers work on the planning, development and maintenance of technical systems for air traffic control.
Central Nervous System. The CNS consists of the brain and the spinal cord, which are enclosed in the skull and in the spinal canal that is formed by the vertebrae. It is where many of the bodily functions are controlled, where many sensations are processed, and from which signals are sent to the different parts of the body. These functions include muscle control, eyesight, breathing, memory, etc. The CNS is distinguished from the peripheral nervous system, which includes the actual nerves to and from the muscles and other body parts.
Central Nervous System. The CNS includes the brain and spinal cord. The prevailing theory is that CNS cells won't repair themselves. Experiments show, however, that CNS nerves can re-grow and reconnect to appropriate targets. A clinical "fix" for spinal cord injury has not yet been found.
Central nervous system. embraces those cells that lie within spinal cord and brain (brainstem, cerebellum and the cerebral hemispheres). It is composed of neurons and a number of different types of neuroglial cells
Continuous net settlement. Method of securities clearing and settlement using a clearing house, which matches transactions to securities available, resulting in one net receive or deliver position at the end of the day.
The Continuous Netting System that functions at the heart of NSCC's computerized program for clearing securities trades and constantly calculating the offsetting value of buy and sell orders so that the net number of obligations requiring payment can be updated over the course of a trading day. (See Netting.)
Computer & Network Services. They handle RISD's Internet and telephone communications. They also manage the 3 public computer labs on campus ("public" meaning "not controlled by one academic department"): The AMC, the Mac Center, and the Homer Hall lab.
Clinical Nurse Specialist. An advanced practice nurse who has a master's degree in nursing, and specializes in a particular field. A Clinical Nurse Specialist has special expertise in patient care, family education, and staff support.
