15.masses of neuron cell bodies, usually outside the central nervous system
17.the brain and spinal cord
18.part of the nervous system outside of the central nervous system
22.the sequence of electrical changes that occurs in a portion of nerve cell membrane that is exposeed to a stimulus that exceeds the membrane's threshold

6.stimulation level that must be exceeded to elicit a nerve impulse or muscle contraction
8.fatty material that forms a sheathlike covering around some axons
10.neurological cells that line with ventricles of the brain
11.process of a neuron that recieves input from other neurons
13.carry nerve impulses from receptors or sense organs towards the central nervous system.
14.motor pathways of the peripheral nervous system that lead to the skin and skeletal muscles
