Electronic technology provided the techniques and giant nerve fibres of squids provided the experimental material that enabled two nobel prize winners for physiology, alan lloyd hodgkin and andrew fielding huxley, to extend this hypothesis into a theory of the excitation of nerve cells in which sodium ions and potassium ions play principal roles. The nervous system is the part of the body that coordinates voluntary and involuntary actions and transmits signals to and from different parts of its body it detects and responds to changes inside and outside the body. Neurophysiology (from greek νεῦρον, neuron, nerve φύσις, physis, nature, origin and -λογία, -logia, knowledge) is a branch of physiology and neuroscience that is concerned with the study of the functioning of the nervous system.

For example, the nerve to the bulky medial gastrocnemius muscle of a human contains about 580 motor axons, whereas the much smaller first dorsal interosseous nerve has 119 axons the nerve to the tiny lateral rectus muscle contains more than 1700 motor axons. Branches of the nerve and blood vessels follow the connective tissue components of the muscle of a nerve cell and with one or more minute physiology 22: 167-173. The trigeminal nerve, cn v, is the fifth paired cranial nerve it is also the largest cranial nerve in this article, we shall look at the anatomical course of the nerve, and the motor, sensory and parasympathetic functions of its terminal branches.
Physiology of nerve conduction the major positive ions inside the cell are potassium (k+) the major positive ions outside the cell are sodium (na+. Follow nerve pathways as they travel through the nervous system the simplest of these path ways , including a few neurons , constitutes a reflex arc pass through the spinal cord are called. Physiology of nerve conduction the central nervous system consists of billions of nerve cells called neurons, which are able to respond to stimuli, conduct impulses, and perform cell to cell communication. Peripheral nerves are formed by axonal extensions of neurons in the dorsal root ganglia and spinal cord (spinal nerves), brain stem (cranial nerves), or sympathetic and parasympathetic ganglia.
A nerve is an enclosed, cable-like bundle of axons (nerve fibers, the long and slender projections of neurons) in the peripheral nervous system.

The femoral nerve is the major nerve that serves the tissues of the thigh and leg, including the muscles and skin while the much larger sciatic nerve also passes through the thigh on its way to the lower leg and foot, only the femoral nerve innervates the tissues of the thigh nerve signals carried. The nerve impulse in a motor neuron, the action potential begins at the axon hillock (a swelling where the axon exits the soma) propagation of the action potential is the term used to describe the transmission of the action potential down the axon the action potential does not directly travel down the axon.
