Nervous tissue is made up of Nerve cells --neurons
Neurons are comprised of Cell Body, Dendrites, Axon, Terminal
Glial acts as support cells of NS, Form myelin on the axons of neurons,
Dendrites Recieve electrical signals and conduct those signals toward the cell body
Cell body Houses the nucleus and a number of organelles critical to the function of the nuron
Axon projects off the cell body and transmits the electrical signal down the axon in one direction toward the terminal
Terminal Is adequately stimulated releases a chemical to carry the message to the next nearon in line
Impulse When the axon transmits information
Synapse Interactiong between the terminal and another neuron or muscle
Myelin Insulation covering found on axons, made of glial cells, significant to transmit signals rapidly
Neurotransmitters Chemical released by terminal.
Why are neurotransmitters needed? For contraction of the muscle to take place
Neuromuschular synapse Synapse between motor neurons and the muscles
Motor unit A given motor neuron and all the muscle fibers it intervates
CNS Brain and spinal cord
PNS Visceral and somatic
Visceral can futher be divided into motor and sensory
Visceral motor can be divided into sympathic and parasympathic
Somatic can be divided into motor and sensory
