The nervous system functions as a communication system, transmitting messages in the form of action potentials along the axons of neurons and in the form of neurotransmitters at synapses between neurons and the cells they control.

Action Potential

Action Potential A neuron can receive input from other neurons and, if this input is strong enough, send the signal to downstream neurons. Transmission of a signal between neurons is generally carried by a chemical called a neurotransmitter. Transmission of a signal within a neuron (from dendrite to axon terminal) is carried by a brief reversal of the resting membrane potential called an action potential. When neurotransmitter molecules bind to receptors located on a neuron’s dendrites, ion…

This is my favorite part. Especially when its involving the muscular system. So amazing.
