Nerve Impulse
Consists mostly of neuron cell bodies
Gap between adjacent neurons
Integrates and evaluates sight data
Collects, integrates, and evaluates smell data
Fiber tracts such as Corpus Callosum
Spiderlike phagocyte; disposes of debris
P: Impulse moves toward cell body (hopping over myelin in PNS)
