1.Using the materials at hand build a motor neuron 2.Be sure to include: - dendrite cell body axon myelin sheath schwann cell nodes of Ranvier axon terminal synapse neurotransmitter 3.Include a description of the role each of the above structures plays in nerve cell function. 4.Surround your nerve cell with: astrocytes, microglial cells, and Oligodendrocytes. 5.Explain the supporting role these cells play in nerve tissue Build a Motor Neuron!
