Interdisciplinary field studying how biological processes relate to behavioral and mental processes
Cells that provide structural, nutritional, and other support for the neurons, as well as communication within the nervous system; also called glia or neuroglia
Brancing neuron structures that receive neural impulses from other neurons and convey impulses toward the cell body
Part of the neuron containing the cell nucleus, as well as other structures that help the neuron carry out its functions; also known as the soma
Long, tubelike structures that conveys impulses away from the neuron's cell body toward other neurons or to muscles or glands
Layer of fatty insulation wrapped around the axom of some neurons, which increases the rate at which nerve impulses travel along the axon.
Of axom form junctions with other cells and release chemicals called neurotransmitters
Within/along an axon, communication occurs through this- neural impulse that carries information along the axon of a neuron;electrical
