Storyboard Text

  • 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.
