How Neurons Work
A neuron is a specialized cell that transmits information by electrical and chemical signals. A typical neuron has dendrites, a cell body, an axon, and axon terminals. Axon terminals transmit signals and dendrites receive signals. This poster illustrates how synapses work to transmit information from neuron to neuron, and how action potentials transmit electrical signals along the neuron.
