Nerve Diagram of Human Body Labeled

Study the cell of the nerve system with the help of the following nerve diagram. These diagrams are all labeled and we also give a diagram of the nerve system of the neck.

All of the diagrams show you the detailed illustration of the nerve system in our body. Let’s explore the following nerve cell and system diagram below.

Here we have free and printable nerve diagrams for you who are learning about the nerve system. A neuron or nerve cell is an electrically excitable cell that receives, processes, and transmits information through electrical and chemical signals. These signals between neurons occur via specialized connections called synapses. Neurons can connect to each other to form neural pathways and neural circuits.

A typical neuron consists of a cell body (soma), dendrites, and an axon. Dendrites are thin structures that arise from the cell body. An axon is a special cellular extension that arises from the cell body at a site called the axon hillock and travels for a distance, as far as 1 meter in humans or even more in other species. Neurons are the primary components of the central nervous system. You can take a look at the following nerve diagrams to know more about neurons.
