Nervous Tissue

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 01 May 2022

Nervous tissue is found in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. To do all these things, cells in nervous tissue demand to be able to connect with each other using electric nerve impulses. The cells in nervous tissue that generate and carry out impulses are called neurons or nerve cells. The almost all of the cell, the part that continues the basic functions, is the cell body. An extension or procedure called an axon brings impulses away from the cell body. Nervous tissue additionally consists of cells that do not transfer impulses, however rather support the tasks of the neurons.
