How The Brain Works

Neurons ( nerve cells) – A neuron is a basic unit of the nervous system that sends, receive, and interprets information

Have you ever wondered how you get up in the morning , or walk to class or even just carrying your books? Well the answer lies in one of the largest andmost complicated organs in your body. It has more than 100 billion nerves which communicate in trillions of "connections" called synapses. All of this is comppressed into one simple 5-lettered word..... BRAIN!

Neurons!!!

An action potential is initiated when a messenger (neuron) attaches itself to a receptor. When that occurs a signal is activates to be generated throughout the neuron. Once the signal reaches to the end of the axon , the neurotransmitter is released and the process repeats.

Neurons communicate to the brain through an electrochemical process. Sensory receptors interact with stimuli, light, sound, temperature and pain, which the neurons transfer into a code that is carried to the brain by a chain of neurons. The systems of neurons then interpret this information, which is carried along by the axons and dendrites because of changes in electrical properties which is called action potential.

How to put it together!1- place the Mary Biscut at the tope of the plate2- Place walnuts around the biscut3- place the chocolate piece in the middle of the Biscut4- Take the gronola bar and split it in half- Place one half under the Biscut6- cut the next half into three sections7- finally place those three sections at the end of your model
