Nervous system

Neurons cells of the nervous system that are structurally composed of a cell body, dendrites, and an axon. They not only initiate nerve impulses but also conduct them
Dendrites receptive sites of the nerve cell; they extend from the cell body, giving the cell a starlike shape; they receive stimuli and convey them as nerve impulses to the cell body
axons extensions of the neuron that conducts the nerve impulse away from the cell body to the terminal bouton at the end of the neruon
neuroglia auxillary cells in the nervous system that supports and protects the neurons. examples are oligodendrocytes, microglia, and astrocytes
oligodendrocytes glial cells in the brain and spinal cord whose cellular membrane forms the myelin sheath for axons in the CNS
microglia found in the brain tissue
white matter myelinated axons in the cns
gray matter part of the cns made up of neuron cell bodies
