THE NUCLEUS OF A NEURON #5
August 17, 2019
WHAT IS A NUCLEUS OF A NEURON?
AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
The nucleus of a neuron is the source of action potential spikes of biochemical current (signals/impulses) that are sent down a neuron's axon filament to cross a synaptic gap when it is activated by your new experiences or old habits.
All of your 100-200 billion neurons have nuclei (plural for "nucleus") capable of sending action potential spikes (ionic signals/impulses) to other neurons, muscles, senses, internal organs, and glands.
The action potential spikes of biochemical current (signals/impulses), which are generated by the nucleus of each of your neurons, can cause neurons to connect with each other or with your muscles, senses, internal organs, and glands in order to activate them.
Therefore, it is very important to understand the inner nano-microscopic quantum effects of the nucleus of a neuron, since it contains your DNA as well as many other essential cellular parts, such as mitochondria and ribosomes, necessary to produce the "sparks of life".
The fundamental function of the nucleus of a neuron is to be the "engine", which makes neurons the ultimate building blocks of your consciousness, self-identity, and free will.
RECOMMENDATION: You can re-read this summary according to a reinforcement schedule, such as a few hours later and a few days later and then several times in the next week or two. This strategy can help you take advantage of the power of the spaced-repetition method of memorization. Such deep introspection can strengthen your willpower
and change your adaptable self-identity to increase your self-esteem.
You are your adaptable memory!
