8) The paranode contains cytoplasm, and it is thought to be involved in axo-glial interactions as well as molecular transport between the Schwann cell body and deep layer of myelin.
In situ , one cardiac TC in the interstitial space of a mouse heart was visible in parallel with and in close proximity to myocardium bundles, with an oval-shaped cell body and a very long, thin, convoluted and overlapped Tps that formed a three-dimensional labyrinthine network disposition; this is the significant feature that is different from FBs [Figure 1]a.
They saw that dendrites are not always activated when the cell body is activated in a neuron.
The action potential originates at the cell body of a neuron and propagates along the axon.
Dendritic spines help transmit electrical signals to the neuron's cell body.
Striking morphological changes were observed in epimastigotes treated with guaianolide, such as thinning and stretching of the cell body and flagellum and changes in the format of the cell body with apparent leakage of the cytoplasmic content in trypomastigote forms.
The vehicle features automatic hill descent and hill hold, cruise control, Intellipark front and rear park assist, light-sensing headlamps and rain-sensing windscreen wipers, electronic stability control (ESP) with a rollover mitigating sensor, airbags and crumple zones in its safety cell body.
neuron Any of the impulse-conducting cells that constitute the brain, spinal column, and nerves, consisting of a nucleated cell body with one or more dendrites and a single axon.
A dendritic spine is a small membranous protrusion from a neuron's dendrite that typically receives input form a single synapse of an axon, stores synaptic strength, and helps transmit electrical signals to the neuron's cell body.
The basic nerve cell, or neuron, consists of a cell body.
