all-or-none response → neurons that carry incoming information from the sensory receptors to the central nervous system.
action potential → a nerve impulse.
inattentional blindness → failure to see visible objects when our attention is directed elsewhere.
endocrine system → the body's speedy, electrochemical communication network, consisting of all the nerve cells of the peripheral and central nervous systems.
brainstem → the junction between the axon tip of the sending neuron and the dendrite or cell body of the receiving neuron.
