Q.2 Make a sketch of the human nerve cell. What function do nerve cells perform?

Answer :

Function of nerve cells:

Neurons, also known as nerve cells, send and receive signals from the brain.

Specialized projections in the nerve cell, called as axons, allow neurons to transmit electrical and chemical signals to other cells.

A neuron or nerve cell communicates with other cells via specialized connections called synapses. Thus it helps to control and coordinate the working of different parts of the body.
