Collection: Neurons

Neurons, or nerve cells, are the basic building blocks of our brains, passing information in the form of electrical and chemical signals between each other and also other cells. Your brain contains over 80 billion neurons and in terms of function their role is endless; from sensory neurons that help you taste and smell to motor neurons that help you move.

Neurons can vary in diameter from 4 microns-100 microns but their length is highly variable and some neurons, such as those of the sciatic nerve, can reach up to 1 metre!

 A neuron has a beautiful ‘tree like’ structure with a cell body (soma) for protein synthesis and to contain genetic information, the dendrites to receive stimuli or chemical signals from other neurons and the axon, an elongated fibre that transmits the impulse by altering the flow of sodium and potassium ions across the neuronal membrane.
