7 IA. The basic unit of the nervous system = neuron? Dendrites receive stimuliNerve cell body@ nucleus transmits the stimuliAxon transmits the impulse to another dendrite
8 Axon ending: terminal bud Transfers the electrical nerve impulseBy chemical neuron-transmittersFrom one neuron to the next
9 IA2. Two connecting neurons: Axon endingImpulse directionDendrite ofnew neuronAxonCell Body
10 REVIEW………………. What is the name of the nerve cell ? Does the stimulus travel one- way or down the neuron in two directions?Which part receives the stimuli? (The synapse, dendrites, cell body, or axon)Which is covered by a myelin sheath ?What is the purpose of the myelin sheath?
