Herein, do all animals have a nervous system?

All animals have a true nervous system except sea sponges. Cnidarians, such as jellyfish, lack a true brain but have a system of separate but connected neurons called a nerve net. Echinoderms, such as sea stars, have neurons that are bundled into fibers called nerves.

Why do animals need a nervous system?

Even animals that don't think have simple nervous systems called nerve nets that help them move. Your peripheral nervous system is made up of the network of neurons that spans your organs, muscles, and body. The neurons in both systems work together to help you think, survive, and change the world around you.
