What are neural signals?
Neural Signals are the electrical potential carrying the information to be transmitted between neurons/dendrites. They also initiate chemical stimulation on the synapses to transfer/carry forward the message from/to brain.

A signal is a function that represents a physical quantity,a function may be defined by two or more variable. e.g a Sinosoidal signal require three parameters to define it c…ompletely that are amplitude,frequency and phase.
In telephony, signaling is the exchange of information between involved points in the network that sets up, controls, and terminates each telephone call. In in-band sign…aling , the signaling is on the same channel as the telephone call. In out-of-band signaling , signaling is on separate channels dedicated for the purpose.
It is an Brain of Robot
The neural tube is the part of the development of the central nervous system in a developing embryo. What is pretty amazing about this is that within the first 4 weeks of …development from conception, the entire framework of the central nervous system will have finished forming! Around day 18, the neural plate appears at the midline of the thickening of the ectoderm, the outermost layer of the germinal sac. Essentially what happens over the next couple of days is that the neural plate forms a depression, which eventually is pushed down and separated from the original cell layer by the fusion of the neural crests, resulting in the formation of a neural tube - this is rather hard to explain without a proper diagram!
The word neural is associated with the brain. A neural network is a computer system or interface that is linked to the brain or neurological system.
neural scutping is the brains ability to cleave (or destroy) neural pathways that are no long being utilized by the brain. It is almost like a weeding process.
Neural convergence refers to the phenomenon of multiple sensory receptors giving information to a smaller number of neural cells. For example, in the retinal periphery, many p…hotoreceptors converge on a smaller number of ganglion cells so that the brain doesn't have to process inputs from each photoreceptor.
Neural Mechanisms refer to structures such as neurons (nerve cells), neural circuits and regions of the brain plus substances such as neurotransmitters and hormones. These reg…ulate behaviour, voluntary and involuntary systems.
Simply, it is the process of removing neurons that are no longer used or useful in the brain.
Neural reflexes are the building blocks for the diagnosis of dysfunction in the CNS. This article describes the basis of neural connection underlying the control of posture, t…he autonomic nervous system, monosynaptic stretch reflexes, and polysynaptic motor reflexes. The neural reflexes consist of the stimulus, the receptor, sensory neurones, efferent, effectors and respnse
Neurotransmitters are chemicals that are involved in communication between the nervous system and endocrine glands. It is basically a chemical message.
Neural coding refers to the pathways and transformations needed to relay sensory information into the nervous system.
The neural tunic, also known as the sensory tunic, is the deepest of the tunics in the eyeball. It's rods and cones allow for sight, and it contains neurons and ganglia.
Neural means "of or relating to the nerves, neurons, or nervoussystem".
Both types of signaling can occur over long distances: neurons can send action potentials along very long axons (from the spinal cord to the fingers, for example), … and hormones are passed through the bloodstream throughout the organism. Neurons secrete large amounts of neurotransmitters into a small, well-defined space at the synapse, yielding a high local concentration. Neurotransmitter receptors, theref ore, need to bind to neurotransmitters with only low affinity (high K d). By contrast, hormones are diluted extensively in the bloodstream, where they circulate at minuscule concentrations; hormone receptors, therefore, generally bind their hormones with extremely high affinity (low K d). Neuronal signaling is very fast, limited only by the speed of propagation of the action potential and the workings of the synapse. In addition to speed, nerves communicate directly with one or a few cells. Hormonal signaling is slower, limited by blood flow and diffusion over relatively large distances, but it communicates at the same time with all the diverse and widely dispersed target cells in the body.
