Why are hormones and neurotransmitters different from each other?
A hormone, by definition, is a compound produced by an endocrine gland and released into the bloodstream where it can find it's target cells at some distance from it's actual site of release. A neurotransmitter on the other hand is a compound released from a nerve terminal. When an electrical impulse travels to the end of a nerve cell, it stimulates the terminal of this cell to secrete a chemical signalling molecule at a special junction between nerve cells called a synapse. These nerve terminals are in direct apposition with their target cells to ensure rapid and specific delivery of the signal. This mode of transmission is in general much faster than the endocrine transmission I mentioned above. Both target cells possess receptors for the signalling molecule and may produce identical biochemical responses, it's just a question of the release mechanism that determines whether or not a given molecule is a neurotransmitter or a hormone. So, in the case of adrenaline, it's a hormone when the adrenal gland releases it into the bloodstream and it goes to the heart or the lungs OR it's a neurotransmitter when it is released from a stimulated presynaptic nerve cell and acts on it's neighbouring postsynaptic cell.

Because the atomic mass is determined by the sum of the number of protons and neutrons contained in the nucleus, isotopes differ in mass. Since they contain the same number of protons (and hence electrons), isotopes have the same chemical properties. However, the nuclear and atomic properties of iso…topes can be different. The electronic energy levels of an atom depend upon the nuclear mass. Thus, corresponding atomic levels of isotopes are slightly shifted relative to each other. A nucleus can have a magnetic moment which can interact with the magnetic field generated by the electrons and lead to a splitting of the electronic levels. The number of resulting states of nearly the same energy depends upon the spin of the nucleus and the characteristics of the specific electronic level.. of neutrons (MORE)

Rocks differ from each other because of their mineral composition and their formation method.. They are just that way. Igneous are usually light and might have small crystals and holes. Sedimentary have layers and often have fossils. Metamorphic can have layers or crystals.
Rocks can differ in many ways -- too many to list. Two examples: . Composition- The mineral composition is one way that rocks can differ. Some rocks, described as felsic , contain more silica and less iron and magnesium than mafic rocks. Rocks can further be divided by the proportions of these a…nd other elements that they contain. . Method of formation- Rocks can form in three main ways. . Igneous rocks are solidified from melt. The speed of cooling and the composition of the magma from which they are formed determine the type of igneous rock. For example, basalt and gabbro have approximately the same composition, but different cooling speeds. Gabbro and granite have similar cooling speeds, but different compositions. . Sedimentary rocks are formed by the lithification of sediments or precipitates. Again, they can be further divided by the composition of the rocks from which they are formed, as well as by grain size. Additionally, the method of sedimentary formation (biochemical, chemical, or clastic) determines the type of sedimentary rock. For example, limestone can be formed as a biochemical sedimentary rock (fossiliferous limestone), a chemical sedimentary rock (travertine), or a clastic sedimetary rock (clastic limestone). . Metamorphic rock is formed when a rock undergoes pressure and/or heat without melting. The amount of heat or pressure as well as the direction of any applied pressure influences the type of metamorphic rock produced. The amount of time over which the rock is exposed to pressure or heat also affects the rock produced. For example, rocks such as gneiss experience differential pressure, which causes foliation to occur. In contrast, quartzite does not experience such differential pressure, and is not foliated. (MORE)
The variation in the structure and function of proteins is related to the number and the various combinations of amino acids they contain.
Some people don't like to be alike from other people. Others love being the same. People are different because they don't feel very comfortable with someone else like yourself. I have a twin so I know how it's like having someone like you.

Physically, we are what our DNA determines us to be. My hair colour was determined when I was conceived, so was my skin- and eye-colour. Whether I would be tall or short was also determined then.. When animals mate, one half of the male's DNA is matched with one half of the female's. These halvings… don't always follow the same pattern. In my case, my mother and father had four children, and each of us got different bits of their DNA.... not very different bits, just slightly different - that's why we look somewhat alike.. The reason humans differ - physically - from one another is because they all got different parts of their parents' DNA - and their parents' DNA was already different from other people's.. Most animals reproduce like this - except for insect species where there is a 'queen' who's offspring are almost all totally identical.. The other way we differ of course is temperamentally - our characters are all different because they are formed when we are young and our family background and our environment contribute to shape our personality, so we differ from people who had a very different background and lived in different times.

Atoms differ in atomic number. The atomic number = the # of protons in the atom.
Assuming you mean how are hens and roosters different-. Roosters are bigger and generally prettier and meaner. (but not always). They also have spurs on the backs of their lower legs. Hens lay eggs of course. They are slightly smaller and have duller colorings that roosters.
The difference between elements stems from their atomic structure. The difference between one element and another stems from the number of protons and electrons in each atom. Each element has its own unique number of protons and electrons per atom eg Hydrogen atoms have 1 proton and 1 electron, Heli…um 2, Lithium 3 and so on. The number of electrons has a major influence on how the atom behaves when in contact with elements of a different element. This affects its ability to form chemical compounds, its ability to form ions, its ability to burn (oxidise), and so on. The number of protons in the atoms' nuclei (and the number of neutrons asociated with them) affects the mass of the electron and its ability to move or vibrate. Roughly speaking , the larger the nucleus (ie the number of protons and neutrons) then the more likely the element is to be a liquid or even a solid at any given temperature. And in the case of solids some atoms or molecules are able to form lattice structures better then others which affects the strength of the material. Some atomic structures are unstable and give off atomic radiation as they change to a more stable structure. These elements are radioactive.

Neurotransmitters travel across synapses in neuron while hormones travel across the blood stream. Hormones are secreted by glands while N.T.'s are secreted by vesicles in the synaptic bulb. An example of a N.T. would be Norepinephrine. Epinephrine is a hormone.
A neurotransmitter is a chemical substance released from nerve fiber that helps in transfer of impulse to another nerve/muscle A hormone is produced to stimulate specific cells/tissues into action. it is transported in tissue fluids.
It is because they act like humans. Families live in different houses that's why they also want to live in different habitats..
Norepinephrine is a mediator that is considered to be both aneurotransmitter and a hormone. Hormones that are produced by bothovaries and testes are inhibin.
There are many kinds of stars: they can be big, they can be small, they can look blue or green, they can have many planets around them or none at all, they could be very old and ready to explode at any moment into a supernova, or they could just calmly cool down into a dwarf star. There are too many… kinds of stars to list, but here's one thing I can tell you: just like every human being, no two stars are exactly the same. (MORE)

Well, there are many different catergories of creatures, all different in a way. But ill just narrow them down to mammals and cold bloods for now. Cold bloods carry a great many differences from mammals. The mammals usually have pouches, and most of them, except for the echidna and the also-australi…an platypus, do not lay eggs. The echidna and the platypus are named, monotremes, being the only two mammals that lay eggs. Cold bloods, on the other hand, lay eggs. Mammals have sweat glands and hair. This is another difference. Mammals will usually have fur, or hair, like the humans, and sweat naturally, or get cold naturally. (Mind you, there are no such things as shiver glands!) While, cold blooded creatures have to move to place to place to get warm. If a reptile gets to cold, their body will freeze, kind of like dying, but they are not really dead. Think of it as unwilling hibernation... If this happens to your pet turtle, make sure you place him in front of a slowly warming heater! Reptiles, like mammals, are still allowed to have skin, though it would be rather queer to see a mammal with scales! Alll reptiles are cold blooded. (MORE)

Astronomers divide stars into five main groups according to their size.They are grouped according to their life span. 1.Supergiants They are the largest stars. Examples are Antares and Betelgeuse. Antares has a diameter that is 330 times than the sun. Betelgeuse has a diameter of 375 t…o 595 times that of the sun. 2.Giants They have diameters that are about 10 to 100 times larger than the sun's. Aldebaran has a diameter that is 36 times that of the sun. 3. Medium-sized stars They are as big as the sun. Other stars in this group are Altair,Sirius,and Rigel. 4.White dwarfs They are the small stars. The smallest dwarf is Van Maanin's star. It has a diameter of 8 370 km,less than the distance across Asia. 5.Neutron Star They are the tiniest stars. Their mass is less than that of the sun but are so compact. Their diameter is about 20 km.

Evolutionary seen, it all started with the chorda dorsalis (which we only have when we are foetusses and disappear in time) which would be surrounded by a layer of Cartilage (the same as your ears), by time the animals grew a cranium and multiple other cartilage bones which all had their function (a…s they were fish, they got their fins). Eventually to become better resistant to the world, the cartillage changed in real bone (full of Ca), and as those fish became Tetrapodamorpha, the fins became cluttering together to become what you see now as your legs and arms. Conclusion, all bones look different, because they all had/have their function (the past term as because eg the stuit is completely useless) (MORE)

These are typically known as neuromodulators; they can either change the rate at which a neurotransmitter is released, or alter the response to a certain neurotransmitters.
They are both from different systems. Hormones are from the endocrine system and neurotransmitters are from the nervous system. They both also have different ways of how they communicate with the body to change or have a reaction. Hormones travel through the blood to the location that needs to be ch…anged or balanced. Neurotransmitters travel along nerves. A third thing is that they affect the body differently. Hormones affect the systems that we generally don't notice, like our growth. Whereas neurotransmitters our typically immediately noticed, like tickling or pain. (MORE)

Once action Potential reaches Dendrides of the Neuron, the cell isDepolarized, causing the cell (neuron) to release a chemicalsignal, known as a nuerotransmitter, from the Pre-synsaptic cleft,where it will bind to recepters on the Post-synaptic cleft.
Neurotransmitters and hormones are both chemical messengers, which are released from one cell and are designated to carry a signal to a target cell elsewhere in the body. When the target cell is reached, it will trigger a specific response in that cell. The major difference is that neurotransmitter…s are specific to nerve tissue, and travel from one neuron to the next. The target cell is the next neuron; it is a short distance which is traveled very quickly. Hormones' target cells are typically farther away elsewhere in the body, and therefore must be released into the bloodstream and circulate through the whole body to reach its target cell. This process is much slower than the travel of neurotransmitters. (MORE)
