5 True/False questions
Microglia → Removes waste material and other micro organisms that could prove harmful to the neuron.
thiamine → Other major components of the nervous system. And include astrocytes, micro glia, radial glia, oligdendrocytes and Schwann cells.
Myelin Sheath → Some neurons are covered with an insulating material called myelin sheath.
Oligdendrocytes and Schwann cells → Further branch out and increase surface area of some dendrites.
Evolutionary Behavior → Describes why a structure or behavior evolved as it did.
