Storyboard Text

  • Doctor, what's wrong with him?!?!
  • It seems that his Neurons are not working properly...
  • Neurons are the basic unit on which the entire brain and nervous system are built
  • What are neurons?
  • On each cell, there is a receptor site that sits on the top of the cell that listens for messenges. 
  • The terminal buttons have sacs that release neurotransmitters that are necessary to pass signals through the neuron
  • Every neuron consists of an axon, dendrites, soma, terminal buttons, myelin sheath, and synapses
  • Glial cells provide nutrition and protection for the neurons, which is what your son is lacking, making his neurons weak,  but he will be okay. 
  • Two types of neurons are called presynaptic neurons, and postsynaptic neurons. Presynaptic neurons fires the neurotransmitter as a result of an action potential entering its axon terminal. A postsynaptic neuron is when an electrical impulse is transmitted across a synaptic cleft by the release of a chemical neurotransmitter 
  • Neurons go through multiple actions such as action potential, refractory period, threshold, all-or-none response, depolarization, and reuptake
  • Action potential is the positive charge that creates an electrical impulse. Threshold is when the electrical charge fires. When there is a change in charge that is called depolarization. All-or-none principal means that the neurons energy either fires or it doesn't. In some cases the originating neuron reabsorbs the chemicals and that is called reuptake. For neurons, the recovery stage is known as the refractory period. 
  • Thank you for telling me everything about a neuron and letting me know that my son is going to be okay!
  • I get it now!!
