Question How to view process control blocks in linux?

Hi all,

We all know that we can use "ps -aux" to view all the running processes in linux. Also each process has its own process control blocks.Is there any way by which we can see the contents of the process control blocks?

This questions arised while studying the process schedulers in our class.
one of the student said that the operating system may not allow us to see the contents of the PCBs.Is he correct?
