Caption: Nerve cells. Computer artwork of nerve cells (neurons) transmitting impulses (white sparks) to each other. Each nerve cell has several long processes called dendrites, which are responsible for receiving signals from other nerve cells. The cells communicate with each other at junctions called synapses. At a synapse, the signalling cell releases neurotransmitter chemicals, which are picked up by the target cell and converted back into a nervous impulse, relaying the information.
