Nerve cells. (86)
Basic units of the nervous system that operate through electrical impulses, which communicate with other neurons through chemical signals. They receive, integrate, and transmit information in the nervous system. go to glossary index
cells that pass electrical signals to, from, and within the brain
Neurons are our body's chemical messengers. 10-12 billion neurons make up our nervous system that transmit information to and from our brain and around our body. 80% of the body's neurons are found on the outer layer of the brain, our cerebral cortex. Neurons are of three main types, sensory neurons, motor neurons, and interneurons.
the structural and functional unit of the nervous system, consisting of the nerve cell body and all its processes, including an axon and one or more dendrites.
term for individual cells of the nervous system that are capable of conducting impulses
a first step toward exploring the potential of hES cells in preclinical models of Parkinson's disease
the fibers which nerves are composed of. They conduct impulses and consist of a cell body containing the nucleus, dendrites, and a single axon.
Cells that act as the main signaling units of the nervous system.
A nervous system cell able to conduct electrical impulses
The basic cellular units of nervous tissue. Each neuron consists of a body, an axon, and dendrites. Their purpose is to receive, conduct, and transmit impulses in the NERVOUS SYSTEM.
A nerve cell; the fundamental unit of the nervous system that works by conducting electrical and chemical signals throughout the brain
Another term for nerve cells.
nerve cells which make up the central nervous system
Nerve cells found throughout the central nervous system. Neurons release neurotransmitters.
Cells which receive stimuli and send messages to other neurons, and muscles and glands.
Another name for nerve cells. The nervous system contains billions of neurons which act in various combinations to perform all functions of human life.
The primary cells of the nervous system. They are found in the brain, the spinal cord and in the nerves and ganglia of the peripheral nervous system.
the bodyâ€(tm)s â€˜controllingâ€(tm) cells, responsible for many of the complex functions of the human body such as thought, memory, control of bodily functions, movement and transmission of electrical signals between the CNS and the body. Neurons consist of a cell body and two types of extension - dendrites and axons. They vary in size and construction, depending on their location and function. Some can be the longest cells in the human body, while others may be very small.
The basic unit of the nervous system. Neurons come in assorted shapes and sizes and each type has a specific role. Chains of neurons transmit electrical impulses throughout the body.
Highly specialized cells that generate and transmit bioelectric impulses from one part of the body to another; the functional unit of the nervous system. A cell of the nerve tissue having a cell body input zone of dendrites and an output zone of an axon (of varying length). The electrochemical nerve impulse/message is transmitted by neurons.

The nerve cells of the brain that carry out neurological function.
The basic nerve cell of the body's nervous system. A neuron contains a nucleus within a cell body. They are classified according to direction in which they conduct impulses, and the number of processes they extend. Sensory neurons transmit impulses to the spinal cord and brain. Motor neurons transmit impulses from the brain to the muscles and glandular tissue. Neurons work according to electrochemical processes involving positively charged sodium and potassium ions and the changing electrical environment of the intracellular and extracellular fluid of the neuron itself.
long, branched cells that carry nerve impulses including pain signals
cells that make up the brain and spinal cord
Nerve cells, the structural and functional unit of the nervous system. A neuron consists of a cell body and its processes, an axon, and one or more dendrites. Neurons function by the initiation and conduction of impulses and transmit impulses to other neurons or cells by releasing neurotransmitters at synapses.
nerve cells of the brain responsible for neurological function
A cell specialized to transmit impulses.
Nerve cell. Fundamental component of the nervous system.
Nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
The building blocks or basic nerve cells of the nervous system.
Brain cells that store and send information. There are about 25 types of neurons in a human brain, but they all consist of a cell body (which produces energy and makes chemicals to sustain the neuron); dendrites (tree-like branches that receive signals from other neurons); and an axon (a very long, branching cable that communicates signals to other neurons).
cells with specialized processes that are the fundamental functional unit of nervous tissue
Nerve cells that receive and send electrical signals over long distances within the body.
A category of brain cells that transmit and relay information to and from the brain to the peripheral nervous system down the spinal cord.
Cells that constitute nervous tissue which have the property of transmitting and receiving nervous impulses.
Cells that send and receive electrical signals to and from parts of the body. These are the nerve cells that are stimulated to send impulses (messages) to and from the brain.
One of two principal classes of cells in the nervous system, composed of three parts: the cell body, dendrites, and axons. Neurons receive and conduct electrical impulses.
A type of cell that makes up tissues of the nervous system and that can send out and accept nervous impulses.
