The brain has over one hundred billion neurons, here is one. This design is looks great worn as a pendant or on a keychain the dimensions are 55mmx18mm. I've designed it to show:dendrites, cell body, cell nucleus, myelin and terminal buttons.
This is a great gift for the geek, nerd, scientist or anyone who is smart and loves to get their brain fired up.
A neuron is an electrically excitable cell that processes and transmits information through electrical and chemical signals. These signals between neurons occur via synapses, specialized connections with other cells. Neurons can connect to each other to form neural networks. Neurons are the core components of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord–which together comprise the central nervous system (CNS)–and the ganglia of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) . Specialized types of neurons include: sensory neurons which respond to touch, sound, light and all other stimuli affecting the cells of the sensory organs that then send signals to the spinal cord and brain, motor neurons that receive signals from the brain and spinal cord to cause muscle contractions and affect glandular outputs, and interneurons which connect neurons to other neurons within the same region of the brain, or spinal cord in neural networks.
