... or " neuron ," which conducts the electrical stimulation
received from other cells to the body or soma of the cell from which it projects. This stimulation
arrives through synapses , which typically are ...
Dendrites were once believed to merely convey stimulation
passively, without action potentials and ...
... is determined by the pattern of secretion and the signal transduction of the receiving tissue.
Hormone actions vary widely, but can include stimulation
or inhibition of growth, induction or suppression of apoptosis (programmed cell death), activation or inhibition of the immune system , regulating ...
... molecules in the cell membrane which transport glucose into the cell.
Two types of tissues are most strongly influenced by insulin as far as the stimulation
of glucose uptake is concerned: muscle cells ( myocytes ) and fat cells ( adipocytes ). The former are important because of their central role in ...

The nervous system varies greatly among living animals. Cnidarians , such ...
... which release the neurotransmitter) may produce in the post-synaptic neurons (i.e. the neurons being affected by the neurotransmitter) an electrical stimulation
(an electrical excitation ) which will spread to the axon hillock generating an action potential which then travels as a wave of electrical ...
... despite popular belief, the phantom limb phenomena is actually the result of neural signal bleed through the brain's sensory maps, rather than from stimulation
There is one known case of a person losing her entire proprioceptive sense, which is one of the cases discussed in Oliver Sacks ' book ...

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor

Depression has been linked to a lack of stimulation
of the recipient neuron at a synapse. To stimulate the recipient cell, SSRIs inhibit the reuptake of serotonin. As a result, the serotonin stays in ...
