Neuron= an electrochemical messenger; building blocks that are apart of our nervous system; nerve cells; soma (cell body, like the nucleus), dendrites, and axon (is like the talker, sends messages), myelin sheath (speeds up the transition of messages) 1. Parts of the brain 2. Techniques - imaging 3. Genetic bases of behavior 4. Hormonal bases of behavior (endocrine system) 5. Evolutionary psychology: human mating behavior, altruistic vs aggressive, etc 6. *Every Exitor Glutam Inhibit Hormo Attrac *There are billions of neurons in your body: Sensory- responsible for converting external stimuli from the organism's environment into internal electrical impulses. Motor- forms part of a pathway along which impulses pass from the brain or spinal cord to a muscle or gland. *Action signal tells an electrochemical message to move forward along the axon The fatty tissue protects the Signal comes from The connection b/w the end terminal of signal and dendrite is called the synaptic clef, the connection area itself is the synapse.
