The structure of a neuron. Most neurons in the vertebrate nervous system have several main features in common. The cell body contains the nucleus, the
storehouse of genetic information, and gives rise to two types of cell processes: axons and dendrites. Axons are the transmitting element of neurons; they
vary greatly in length, some extending more than 2 m within the body. Most axons in the central nervous system are very thin (between 0.2 μm and 20 μm
in diameter) compared with the diameter of the cell body (50 μm or more). Many axons are insulated by a sheath of fatty myelin that is regularly interrupted
at gaps called the nodes of Ranvier. The action potential, the cell's conducting signal, is initiated at the initial segment of the axon and propagates to the
synapse, the site at which signals flow from one neuron to another. Branches of the axon of the presynaptic neuron transmit signals to the postsynaptic
