In 350 would could you explain the communication process of neurons in the brain. List some common neurotransmitters and describe their effect on behavior. In 350 word could you identifying the major regions of the brain and what functions of behavior the systems of each region control. Neurons are electrically excitable cells found in the nervous system which is mainly responsible in the transmission of information between the neurons and the cells. With the neurons, all body systems are able to communicate with the brain through sending and receiving signals and a connection within specific regions of the central nervous system is established. To be able to attain its function, neurotransmitters are needed by the neurons so that signals between a neuron and a cell are relayed, amplified and modulated. Neurotransmitters are chemicals released by a neuron at the presynaptic nerve terminal by which movement across a small gap called the synapse facilitates accomplishment of communication of information between the neurons and the other cells. These neurotransmitters have various functions which include regulation, stimulation, motivation, transmissions and inhibitions of different body functions. Neurotransmitters play major roles in
