endocrine system this passes messages away from the cell body
cell body neurons that carry outgoing information from the CNS to the muscles and glands
threshold natural, opiatelike neurotransmitters linked to pain control and to pleasure
autonomic regulates growth
axon the level of stimulation requred to trigger a neural impulse
neural networks neurons that carry incoming information from the sense receptors to the CNS
neuron helps speed neural impulses
motor this nervous system conserves energy as it calms
dendrites the body's speedy, electrochemical comunication network
pituitary glands the cell's life support center
