Neurons are specific, unique kinds of cells in our bodies that carry information through electrical and chemical signals. Neurons are a core component of our nervous system, which includes both the brain and the spinal cord.

- They send electrical signals that have a chemical basis.
- They communicate with one another by using chemical signals.
