Neuron Structure

The basic design of a neuron

Your brain is made of approximately 100 billion nerve cells, called neurons.Neurons have the amazing ability to gather and transmit electrochemical signals — think of them like the gates and wires in a computer.

Neurons share the same characteristics and have the same makeup as other cells, but the electrochemical aspect lets them transmit signals over long distances (up to several feet or a few meters) and send messages to each other.

Neurons have three basic parts:

  • Cell body or soma. This main part has all of the necessary components of the cell, such as the nucleus (which contains DNA), endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes (for building proteins) and mitochondria (for making energy). If the cell body dies, the neuron dies.

  • Axon . This long, cablelike projection of the cell carries the electrochemical message (nerve impulse or action potential) along the length of the cell. Depending upon the type of neuron, axons can be covered with a thin layer of myelin sheath, like an insulated electrical wire. Myelin is made offat and protein, and it helps to speed transmission of a nerve impulse down a long axon. Myelinated neurons are typically found in the peripheral nerves (sensory and motor neurons), while non-myelinated neurons are found in the brain and spinal cord.

  • Dendrites or nerve endings. These small, branchlike projections of the cell make connections to other cells and allow the neuron to talk with other cells or perceive the environment. Dendrites can be located on one or both ends of a cell.

How Your Brain Works
by Craig Freudenrich, Ph.D. and Robynne Boyd

Every animal you can think of — mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians — has a brain. But the human brain is unique. Although it’s not the largest, it gives us the power to speak, imagine and problem solve. It is truly an amazing organ.

The brain performs an incredible number of tasks including the following:

It controls body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and breathing.

It accepts a flood of information about the world around you from your various senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching).

It handles your physical movement when walking, talking, standing or sitting.

It lets you think, dream, reason and experience emotions.

All of these tasks are coordinated, controlled and regulated by an organ that is about the size of a small head of cauliflower.

Your brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves make up a complex, integrated information-processing and control system known as your central nervous system.

In tandem, they regulate all the conscious and unconscious facets of your life.

The scientific study of the brain and nervous system is called neuroscience or neurobiology. 

Because the field of neuroscience is so vast — and the brain and nervous system are so complex — this article will start with the basics and give you an overview of this complicated organ.

We’ll examine the structures of the brain and how each section controls our daily functions, including motor control, visual processing, auditory processing, sensation, learning, memory and emotions.

Mind of God = ram0ram footnote 49 A

when we buy a mobile or a computer along with the machine we get a users manual or how to use …… 
but with our brain which is almost a super computer but we do not get any users manual …….why so ? ….if a cosmic intelligence has designed it…. should be users friendly and should be simple to use ….. 

but most of the time we hear talks of complicated problems related to mental health ….. 

is there a design mistake ? or a mistake on our part ….

now we will first understand the machine of brain scientifically then with spiritually through mythological wisdom stories and as we progress we will understand the highest level of flawless design and friendliness of this super computer we call brain …..

so first scientifically brain …

love all.
