The Anatomy of a Neuron

A little video of what is a neuron, the predominant cell of the brain. Its anatomy, the structures that are present in it. This is where all the activity in the brain takes place, in s neuron and in between neurons through nerve impulses that go down axons or even dendrites. Also the spaces between neurons, known as synaptonemal junctions, is where neurotransmitter activity happens and neurotransmitters are secreted by one neuron and picked up by others.

Pretty important cell for neural activity in healthy as well as brains with mental illness. Thought you might like to meet a neuron.
