Term Detail
GO term:transmission of nerve impulse
Synonym: conduction of nerve impulse
Synonym: signal transmission along a neuron
GO id:GO:0019226
Definition:The neurological system process in which a signal is transmitted through the nervous system by synaptic transmission and the sequential electrochemical polarization and depolarization that travels across the membrane of a nerve cell (neuron) in response to stimulation.
Number of paths to term: 8
