Neurons [This transcript represents the audio included in the video provided by your Professor.] [Professor]: Neurons have 4 structures and many neurons have a fifth structure so the basic 4 structures are these, Dendrites which receive the neural signal or action potential from the presynaptic neuron, the Axon which is this long thin structure underneath the purple and that sends the action potential across a distance the terminal buttons which send the neural signal it’s no longer an action potential at this point but it sends the neural signal but it sends it to the next neuron to the post synaptic neuron, the Cell body right here, regulates the life functions of the cell it takes in nutrition, it excretes wastes, the DNA is located in the cell body, and many, not all, have this fifth structure which are these purple sections and these are called Myelin which speed up neural transmission. Here you can see written down the definitions of these terms and not all
