Abstract

Neurons, like the one shown in figure 1, are made up of a cell body, a long tube-shaped axon, and a network of dendrites stemming out to thousands of other neurons. The main function of neurons is to transmit messages in the form of electrical signals that travel across each neuron, from one to the next. When this electrical signal is traveling down the length of the neural axon, it is kept moving by an important biological process of ion movement in and out of the cell.
