The limbic system is a convenient way of describing several functionally and anatomically interconnected nuclei and cortical structures that are located in the telencephalon and diencephalon.
The human nervous system consists of billions of nerve cells (or neurons) plus supporting (neuroglial) cells. Neurons are able to respond to stimuli (such as touch, sound, light, and so on), conduct impulses, and communicate with each other (and with other types of cells like muscle cells). Nervous system

Introduction to Neurons, Synapses, Action Potentials, and Neurotransmission This module is an introduction to the structure and function of neurons, how they generate action potentials, and how they "communicate" with other neurons (neurotransmission) via synapses.
The brain is without doubt our most fascinating organ.
The following resources were developed for classroom use by high school biology teachers who participated in MCB-HHMI Outreach's Summer 2005 "Experimental Biology and Multimedia Workshop". This year's topic was "Neuroscience".
