A nerve (peripheral nerve) is a band of nervous tissue that carries information through the body. Sensory information travels to the brain while signals to contract muscles travel from the brain to the body. Nerves are made of neurons with very long axons, Schwann cells, and layers of protective and supportive tissues.
