Neuron Communication

Neuron Function. There are 3 neurons that do different things, motor, sensory, and relay. The relay neurons allow the motor and sensory neurons to communicate with each other. The motor neurons communicate from the brain and spinal cord to the muscles. The sensory neuron collects information from sensory receptor and transmits it to the brain.


Action potential is how the pulses are sent through the nerves. Inside the nerve membrane it is negatively charged with potassium and outside the nerve membrane there is positively charged sodium. In polarization the positive charge goes inside and the negative charge goes outside. In depolarization the positive goes out and the negative goes in. Through using polarization and depolarization a charge gets sent to the end of the nerve and synapse happens.

Synapse is when the electrical pulse sent through the nerves through neurotransmitters to the axon button. It is then turned into a chemical pulse to cross the synaptic gap. It goes through the post-synaptic membrane and through the Neurotransmitter receivers to the dendrite of the receiving.


A) I use the plugins Custom CSS, Calendar , and Compflight.

B) The strengths of the Custom CSS allows me to customize my blog more, for example I have turned my font into comic sans. The calendar is nice because it allows you to have a calendar on your blog so if you need to know the day you can just check there. Compflight is very useful because it allows you to insert any images you need without having to go to google images as well as putting the image as small, medium, large, or full size.

C) Some of the weaknesses of the Custom CSS is that if you do something and forget how to fix it, your blog could be stuck like that until you get help, for example I don’t remember how to change my font back. The calendar doesn’t really have many weaknesses other then that it isn’t very interactive. Compflights only weaknesses is that it has a limited amount of images in it.

D) Out of all of these I would say that Compflight is the most useful for classes as it makes creating a blog post that requires generic images a lot easier. I also think that Custom CSS is helpful as it allows students to customize their blogs more.
