Clues

  • A layer of schwann cells that prevent the diffusion of ions into the neurone (6)
  • Carry signals over long distances (10)
  • Carry signals over short distances (3, 10)
  • The gaps in the myelin sheath (5, 2, 7)
  • The movement of ions along a neurone by diffusion (5, 7)
  • The movement of molecules down a concentration gradien (9)
  • The way that the action potential appears to jump from one node of ranveir to the next (9, 10)
