Messages from your brain travel through your nerves at up to 200 miles per hour

The time between thinking of moving and moving your body may seem instantaneous, but it actually takes some time. When you feel crawls on your hand, that sense moves through the nervous system and up to your brain at over 150 miles per hour. If you want to shake the ant off, your motor neurons relay the message from your brain and back to your hand at over 200 miles per hour.
