Neuroscience Basics: Neuroglia Functions, Animation.

A human brain contains billions of neurons. Neurons are probably the more important and better-known cells of the brain as they carry out the brain’s communication function. Less known are some trillions of support cells called glia, or glial cells. The glia may not be the center of attention, but without them, neuron functions would…

5. Synapse Structure and Function

The synapse is the connection between two neurons where information is transferred and interpreted. It is a major site for the toxic actions by many insecticidal chemicals. To understand how an insecticide can disrupt the nervous system, it is essential to understand how a synapse functions. Here we see a group of neurons that illustrate…
