Dolly, Dolly, and More Dolly It all started with a sheep named Dolly. In the mid-1990s, scientists proved convincingly that after decades of trying, we could, indeed, clone mammals — and even possibly, human beings. Unsurprisingly, this discovery was one of the most controversial of the 20th Century, and the issue of cloning continues to be just as contentious today.

The nervous system is a very intricate arrangement of cells, tissue layers, and chemicals (salts), that not only are responsible for receiving every form of environmental sensation (receiving information) that we can obtain, but also in responding (sending out information), by inducing muscular movements, and producing reactions to the received information. In brief, the nervous system generates electricity (An Action Potential) which is transported through neurons (cells of the nervous system - our wiring system), to convey the "receiving sensory…
