  • Neurons (specialized cells of the nervous system ) send signals along thin fibers called axons and communicate with other cells by releasing chemicals called neurotransmitters at cell-cell junctions called synapses.

  • Glial cells are non-neuronal cells that provide support and nutrition in the nervous system.

  • In humans, the nervous system consists of both the central and peripheral nervous systems.

  • The human central nervous system contains the brain, spinal cord, and retina.

The peripheral nervous system consists of sensory neurons, clusters of neurons called ganglia, and nerves connecting them to each other and to the central nervous system
