Caption: Nerve cell synapses. Computer artwork of the chemical synapses between two nerve cells, or neurons, (one red and one blue). Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body. Each nerve cell comprises a body (not seen) surrounded by numerous extensions called dendrites. Dendrites collect information from other nerve cells or from sensory cells. Each neuron also has one process called an axon, which passes information to other nerve cells, or to effector cells such as muscle fibres. Nerve cells connect at junctions called chemical synapses (seen here) and form a neural network.
