Class 11 Biology Structural Organisation In Animals Neural tissue

Neural tissue

  • Neural tissue exerts the greatest control over the body’s responsiveness to changing conditions.
  • Neurons, the unit of neural system are excitable cells and the neuroglial cell which constitute the rest of the neural system protect and support neurons.
  • When a neuron is suitably stimulated, an electrical disturbance is generated which swiftly travels along its plasma membrane.
  • Arrival of the disturbance at the neuron’s endings, cause stimulation or inhibition of adjacent neurons and other cell.
