Stimulus detectable change in the internal or external environment.
Neuron A cell of the nervous system.
Impulse is the change of momentum of an object when the object is acted upon by a force for an interval of time.
Effector an organ or cell that acts in response to a stimulus.
Receptors an organ or cell able to respond to light, heat, or other external stimulus and transmit a signal to a sensory nerve.
Response the way in which a mechanical or electrical device responds to a stimulus or range of stimuli.
Neurotransmitters a chemical substance that is released at the end of a nerve fiber by the arrival of a nerve impulse and, by diffusing across the synapse or junction, causes the transfer of the impulse to another nerve fiber, a muscle fiber, or some other structure.
Irritability the quality or state of being irritable.
Dendrites a short branched extension of a nerve cell, along which impulses received from other cells at synapses are transmitted to the cell body.
Cyton biology the central part of a neuron, cell that sends and receives messages within the brain and nerves.
Axon the long threadlike part of a nerve cell along which impulses are conducted from the cell body to other cells.
Hormones a regulatory substance produced in an organism and transported in tissue fluids such as blood or sap to stimulate specific cells or tissues into action.
Glands an organ in the human or animal body which secretes particular chemical substances for use in the body or for discharge into the surroundings.

cerebrum the principal and most anterior part of the brain in vertebrates, located in the front area of the skull and consisting of two hemispheres, left and right, separated by a fissure.
