    Article 'the'

    I have a doubt related to the use of the article 'the'. In the sentence 'The Central Nervous System interprets and organizes the sensory inputs from the vestibular system.', the use of the article 'the' in the beginning of the sentence is correct, or should I omit the article?

    Thanks in advance for the attention and help.

    Welcome to the forum, nuno28.

    All three 'the's are correct.

    There's no need to capitalise 'central nervous system', and move 'is' to before 'the use'.

    Most of the Anglophone world has a question, not a doubt. Having a doubt is a marker of Indian English (and possibly other dialects I don't know about).
