Question and answer
How would you explain the basic structures and functions of neurons and synapses in the brain to your little brother or sister? Consider using analogies and other examples so that he or she can
easily comprehend the information.
Neurons are information processing structures, like a truck that instead of holding items, they hold data instead. Synapses are like the passageways that the neurons use to travel, like the highway. [ Together, information is able to be sent to and from certain areas of the brain (all over the country/world). Of course, that's only a very brief synopsis of neurons and synapses, and I don't know
how in-depth your school has taught you about them. So you'll have to get some neurons flowing through those synapses to figure out the rest. source yahoo ]
