Type of tissue that makes up the central nervous system and nerves
tissue that consists of two kinds of nerve cells, neurons and neuroglia.
A tissue whose cells (neurons and neuroglia) form a communication network. 594
A tissue that consists of two generalized cell types, neurons and neuroglia. Neurons are specialized to initiate action potentials and conduct them at high speeds. Neuroglia provide numerous supportive functions.
The type of tissue composed of individual cells called neurons and supporting neuroglial cells.
Nervous tissue conducts electrical impulses to and from the brain and the rest of the body.
A collection of cells which respond to stimuli and transmit electrical impulses or messages. Examples include: brain, spinal cord and nerves.
Nervous tissue is the fourth major class of vertebrate tissue. The function of the nervous tissue is in communication between parts of the body. It is composed of neurons, which transmit impulses, and the neuroglia, which assist propagation of the nerve impulse as well as provide nutrients to the neuron.
