Explain the structure of neuron with the help of a labelled diagram
Cell Body - contains nucleus and organelles
Dendrites - receive input
Axon - conducts impulses away from the cell body
Axon hillock - an enlarged region where an axon attaches to the cell body
Synaptic terminal - Neurotransmitters are manufactured in the cell body but released from synaptic terminals. The neurotransmitters stimulate other neurons.
Synapse - A synapse is the junction between the synaptic terminal and another cell. The other cell is called a postsynaptic cell.
