3.The branched projections of a neuron that act to conduct the electrochemical stimulation
8.The gaps formed between the myelin sheaths generated by different cells
11.A structure that permits a neuron to pass an electrical or chemical signal to another cell
12.A structure containing a number of nerve cell bodies, typically linked by synapses, and often forming a swelling on a nerve fiber
14.A type of glial cell that are the resident macrophages of the brain and spinal cord
15.Any of the cordlike bundles of fibers made up of neurons through which sensory stimuli and motor impulses pass between the brain
16.An organ having nerve endings (in the skin or viscera or eye or ear or nose or mouth) that respond to stimulation
18.The long threadlike part of a nerve cell along which impulses are conducted from the cell
19.The part of the nervous system that integrates the information that it receives from
20.A nerve fiber that carries impulses toward the muscles or glands.
21.Endogenous chemicals that transmit signals from a neuron to a target cell across a synapse
23.The part of the nervous system responsible for control of the bodily functions not consciously directed
24.The electrical potential of a neuron or other excitable cell relative to its surroundings when at rest
25.The part of a neuron containing the nucleus but not incorporating the axon and dendrites
26.Electrically excitable cell that processes and transmits information by electrical and chemical signaling
1.Any cell that covers the nerve fibers in the peripheral nervous system and forms the myelin sheath
2.A nerve fiber that carries impulses toward the central nervous system
4.A type of neuroglia cell lining the central canal of the spinal cord or the brain
5.Consists of the nerves and ganglia outside of the brain and spinal cord
6.A glial cell resembling an astrocyte but smaller with few and slender processes having few branches
7.A short-lasting event in which the electrical membrane potential of a cell rapidly rises and falls
9.The supportive tissue of the nervous system
10.The part of the peripheral nervous system that is responsible for carrying motor and sensory information
13.The membrane potential to which a membrane must be depolarized to initiate an action potential
17.The insulating envelope of myelin that surrounds the core of a nerve fiber or axon and facilitates the transmission of nerve impulses
18.A star-shaped glial cell of the central nervous system
22.An organ or cell that acts in response to a stimulus
