In our nervous system, each neuron (nerve cell) consists of three parts: a main structure called the cell body; a number of short, branchlike
fibers called dendrites; and a long, cablelike protrusion called an axon, which splits near its tip into many terminals.
The anemone is an animal that looks more like a plant, with tentacles extending from the creature's velvet-soft base in many branchlike
projections that wave rhythmically in ocean currents.
NERVE ENDING--the fine branchlike
terminations of the extensions that carry impulses away from or toward the body of a nerve cell.
We have been working with iPhrase OneStep to deliver a branchlike
experience via the Web since its initial version was released in 2001," said Robert Sofman, senior vice president, eBusiness at Charles Schwab.
The neurons are smaller, with fewer branchlike
structures, Homberg says.
