Neuroscience Basics Two types of cells: 1. Neurons : Specialized to rapidly respond to signals and quickly send signals of their own. 2. Glial : “Glue” together the neural networks and help communication Similarities 1. Myelin Sheath : Let’s some things in and keeps some things out. 2. Cell body : Contains the Nucleus that contains all the genetic information that determines how a cell functions 3. Mitochondria : Structures that turn oxygen and glucose into energy

How do neurons communicate? I. Structure : Long, thin intertwining fibers allow for communication A. Two types of fibers: 1. Axons : Fibers that carry signals away from the cell body 2. Dendrites : Fibers that receive signals from the axons and carry signals to the cell body. II.
