The human body is made up of bones, muscles, organs and to attach all nerves. The nerves play a very important role in conveying information in the form of electrochemical impulses known as nerve impulses or action potentials carried by the individual neurons that make up the nerve. These impulses are extremely fast, with some militated neurons conducting at speeds up to 120 m/s. The impulses travel from one neuron to extra by crossing a synapse, the message is converted from electrical to chemical and then back to electrical.
