Sure, but its harder than you think. It starts with your brain and goes neuron to neuron until it reaches the muscles.
neuron to neuron? what does shooting a basketball have to do with the neurons?
Well a message is sent from the cerebellum to your arm making you able to shoot the ball. The message is sent through millions of neurons to get to your muscles. The message is grabbed by the dendrites and is sent through the axon to the axon terminals. when it reaches the synapse, it jumps to the next
wow i did not know so much work was needed for your body to function
Yeah haha, without the nervous system we would be motionless.
