This activity explains the way that neurons communicate with each other.
Neuron Parts
Match the part of the neuron identified with its description:
o
___ Axon
A. Contains the nucleus, which controls the
function of the entire cell
o
___ Axon terminals
B. Carry signals to other nerve cells
o ___ Cell body (soma)
C. Receive signals from other nerve cells
o ___ Dendrites
D. Contain small sacs called synaptic vesicles
that play an important role in transmitting signals from
one cell to the next
A Tip
• Dendrites ______________________
• Axons _________________________
A Closer Look
• What does it mean to say that an axon’s membrane is “selectively permeable?”
• Given what you know about synaptic transmission, how do you think a message jumps across the
synaptic gap and is passed to the next neuron?
