The nervous system is made up of neurons and non-neuronal cells, glial cells.
Neurons are highly specialized cells for the processing and transmission of
cellular signals and are key components of the brain and spinal cord. The
structure of a typical neuron consists of a cell body called soma, a long thin
axon which is covered by the myelin sheath, and around the cell body there are
branching dendritic trees that receive signals from other neurons. QIAGEN
provides PCR arrays to profile different neurotransmitters, neurotrophins, ion
channels, neurogenesis processes, etc. See details here.
