1. Neurons communicate with other neurons and stimulate both glands and muscles.
2. Match the following parts of the neuron and their function:
Dendrites input area, receives signals from other neuron conductive region; generates an action potential Soma (cell body) input area; main nutritional and metabolic area input area; receives signals from other neurons
Axon conductive region; generates an action potential
input area; main nutritional and metabolic area
3. Signals from other neurons are received at junctions called synapses, located primarily on the dendrites and cell bodies, the receptive and integrative regions of the neuron.
4. The area where the axon emerges from the soma is called the axon hillox
This is also the area where the outgoing signal, called a/an action potential is generated.
5. An axon ...
