You have millions of nerve cells throughout your body that are made up of dendrites, a cell body, and an axon
How do messages from my brain get the the parts of my body?
These nerve cells are all "connected" by a gap in between them called the synapse; the synapse starts from the axon terminals of one neuron and the dendrites of the next,
Signals, or messages, move across the synapse using chemicals called neuron transmitters
The neurotransmitter bind to the receptors in the dendrites and become electrical again.
This process repeats every time your brain tells your body to do something
Thank you! Now I know how neurons send messages.
