Neurons

Two types of glial cells that produce myelin sheaths are oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells
Neurotransmitters, Acetylcholine, hyperpolarization, action potential, depolarization

Neurotransmitters are contained within the synaptic vesicle

A neuron sends a signal by first gaining an action potential, which depolarizes the pre synaptic membrane. It then open voltage-gated channels. Then synaptic vesicles fuse with the presynaptic membrane. Lastly, the neurotransmitters bind to ligandgated ion channels
