The body’s nervous system has three (3) main parts
6800 words 14 pages

BRAIN SPINAL CORD NERVES All three (3) of these parts work together to tell our bodies what to do. For example: The brain says, “Hey, I want to exercise!” So, it sends a message to the spinal cord, who then gives the message to the nerves, who then deliver the message to the rest of […]

The spinal cord, which is 43cm long, is encased in the vertebrae and is the main communication cable between the CNS and the PNS. ‘The nerve fibres running from various parts of the body to and from the brain are gathered together in the spinal cord, where they are protected by the bony spinal vertebrae.’ […]

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are chemicals that communicate between nerves. In some ways, neurons are like computers: they receive messages, process those messages, and send out the results as new messages to other cells. In the case of neurons, messages consist of chemicals that interact with the outer surface of the cell membrane. This chemical interaction with the […]

The Neuromuscular Junction by: Dominique Latham 651 words A neuromuscular junction is a place in the body where the axons of motor nerves meet the muscle, thus transmitting messages from the brain which cause the muscle to contract and relax. Every organism has thousands of neuromuscular joints which are the locations and means by which […]

3. Why don’t the terms depolarization and action potential mean the same thing? The terms depolarization and action potential differ because are excitable cells that communicate by transmitting electrical impulses that are capable of producing rapid electrical signals and depolarization in the interior surface of the membrane which becomes less negative and the exterior surface […]

A motor unit is a motor neuron and the muscle fiber It controls. A whole muscle is made up of hundreds of motor units that are handled by different motor neurons that react at dfferent levels of stimulation. The electric shock acts as an action potential by changing the membrane permeability allowing the sodium and […]

1. What is communication? Communication is by definition the exchange of information between different places. In today’s society, people may relay information on the phone or in a conversation. Similarly, in the body, it is common that information needs to travel in order to make decisions or carry out decisions. For example, a person may […]
