An Overview of the Nervous System: Gray Matter and White Matter
It is made up of many neurons and other cells, which work in concert to allow communication between the brain and body. The main parts of the brain are divided into white matter (gray matter) and gray matter (gray matter). White matter is made up of the axons (neuronal transmitters) that transmit signals to other neurons. These are responsible for the formation of communication paths in the nervous system. Gray matter is made up of cells of neurons and contains the nucleus, as well as other organelles. It is responsible for information processing. New research has shed light on both gray and white matter’s functions (Liu and colleagues, 2016; Chen and co-authors, 2021). It plays an important role in neural information transmission. Myelinated Axons make up the majority of white matter. They are protected by myelin, a fat substance. It allows for electrical signals to travel efficiently and quickly, thus allowing them be sent to the appropriate location. Gray matter on the other side is responsible for information processing and integration. The cell bodies of neurons are the cells that contain the nucleus, and the other organelles. These cells are responsible for producing neurotransmitters that are sent throughout the nervous systems. Cont..
