Neurons are cells specialised for transmitting electric signals.
The reflex triggered by the stretching of the thigh extensor muscle is the patellar reflex.
The withdrawal reflex is a spinal reflex that ensures moving away from potentially damaging stimuli.
The spinal cord is the part of the central nervous system running inside the spinal column from which spinal nerves branch out.
The inability to differentiate certain shades of colour is called colour vision deficiency.
Producing speech requires the synchronised operation of several cortical centres.
The central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord, the peripheral nervous system consists of nerves and ganglia.
The main parts of the human brain are the brain stem, the cerebellum, the diencephalon, and the cerebrum, which is divided into lobes.
