Everything our brain does, from controlling movement to conscious thought, is achieved by the firing of electrical signals called neurons.
- Everything our brain does is achieved by electrical signals produced and conducted by cells called neurons.
- Neurons are linked by tiny gaps called synapses.
- Electrical signals cannot pass directly across a synapse, so are converted into chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine.
- As synapses become established, the transmissions between the two cells become easier and quicker.
