Description Neurons (also neurones or nerve cells or nerve fibers) are a major class of cells (parenchyma) in the nervous system. In vertebrates, neurons are found in the brain, the spinal cord and in the nerves and ganglia of the peripheral nervous system. Their main role is to process and transmit information. Morphologically, a prototypical neuron is composed of a cell body, a dendritic tree and an axon. In the classical view of the neuron, the cell body and dendritic tree receive inputs from other neurons, and axon transmits output signals. Neurons have excitable membranes, which allow them to generate and propagate electrical impulses. Neurons make connections with other neurons and transmit information to them via synaptic transmission. Different types of neurons have different shapes, possess specific electrical properties adopted for their function and use different neurotransmitters.
John Bolin, Halmstad Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement Hello there.
My name is John I´m 32 years old and i live in Sweden.
There are too much to be told but i will give it a try.
I have sailed the seven seas on a Trampliner, I´ve slept in the Taj Mahal, climbed mountains in Kathmandu, made love to a beautiful woman amongst the statues of Easter island and watched the stars rise over Machu Picchu.
I´m both great and not, smart and dumb, a great lover and a greater lover.
