In order to give a complete explanation of this problem it is important to define what is a neuron.
A neuron is a cell which has protrusions. One of these protrusions is very long while the others are small. The small protrusions are called dendrites and on their ends are the synapses. It is through these synapses that the signals are transmitted among ...
The process of conduction of impluses is discussed in this posting. An explanation of the neuron and its parts is given with emphasis on why a threshold potential is required.
