1 Neural Communication: The Neural Chain Module 7: Neural and Hormonal Systems
2 Receptor CellsSpecialized cells in the sensory systems of the body that can turn other kinds of energy into action potentials that the nervous system can processEX. Receptor cells in the eye turn light into a neural impulse the brain understands.Examples from other senses?
3 Sensory NervesNerves that carry information to the central nervous systemThe receptor cell is the beginning of the chainConnect the sense organs to the brain and spinal cord
4 InterneuronsNerve cells in the brain and spinal cord responsible for processing information related to sensory input and motor output
5 Motor NervesNerves that carry information from the central nervous systemCarries messages from the brain and spinal cord to other parts of your body
