|The structural features that are unique to neurons and the types of electric signals that they use to process and transmit information. We then introduce synapses, the specialized sites where neurons send and receive information from other cells, and some of the circuits that allow groups of neurons to coordinate complex processes. Neurons are distinguished and categorized according to general function; there are receptor or sensory neurons, motor neurons and interneurons.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
