go from the brain or spinal cord to a muscle or gland (motor)
lie in the brain or spinal cord (association nerve)
charged particles, either negative or positive
membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord
neuroglial cell; found in CNS, support neurons and carry on phagocytosis
lipid-protein substance (white in color)
chemical released from an axon that starts or stops a nerve impulse
neuroglial cell; found along nerve fibers, form myelin within brain and spinal cord, found in CNS
nervous system containing all nerves coming off of the spinal cord
inner layer of meninges
resulting from unequal distribution of ions
simplest nerve pathway; does not go to the brain
efferent nerve; under conscious control
a junction where information is transmitted from one neuron to the next
