Since the nervous system is being replaced, :( ...
Let's do some questions about it for old times' sake.
1) There are two main types of cells in the nervous system: neurons and _____.
2) Name the three main parts of a neuron (easy peasy)
3) What is Multiple Sclerosis?

1) Neuroglial Cells
2) Dendrite, soma, axon
3) Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune demyelinating disease in which the bodies immune system attacks the Schwann cells
Looking forward to anatomy, protein, fossils, and optics (NYS trial) this year!

That's right, as long as soma is the cell body.
Please hide your answers next time.

Yes the soma is another term for the cell body.
I'm sorry I'll hide them next time.

For the next person, describe the differences between muscarinic and nicotinic cholinergic receptors

Muscarinic and nicotinic cholinergic receptors both respond to acetylcholine, but nicotinic receptors respond to nicotine and are located on sympathetic and parasympathetic postsynaptic cells (i.e. in pretty much all the autonomic ganglia), the chromaffin cells of the adrenal medullae (stimulated by postganglionic sympathetic neurons), and in neuromuscular junctions of the somatic nervous system. Muscarinic receptors respond to muscarin (a type of mushroom poison) and are located in the effectors stimulated by postganglionic parasympathetic neurons, as well as sweat glands, which are innervated by sympathetic neurons

I'll just keep this going, because vennowsah's answer is right.
What are three differences between thin and thick skin?
Also, where is thick skin found?
