it is called the synapses.
1 of 9
what will happened when an electrical impulse will get the end on axon?
a chemical will be produced.
2 of 9
what will happen when the chemical is produced?
the impulse will diffuse from one neurone to the other.
3 of 9
will only one end of the neurone be able to diffuse the chemical?
yes only one end of the neurone will be able to diffuse the chemical.
4 of 9
what two functions does the synapses have?
it is a resistor as well as a junction box.
5 of 9
what does a resistor do?
it will take a number of impulses before transferring them to the next neurone?
6 of 9
what is a junction box?
a junction box is where one neurone will pass a message to another neurone.
