What is the difference between nerve and neuron?

A neuron is an individual cell in the PNS or CNS that can be excited and conduct impulses along its axon. A nerve is a bundle of multiple neuron fibers that each are carrying their own signals. They are protected by connective tissue. Eventually the neuron fibers diverge away from the nerve to reach their destination.

How does a nerve impulse travel between neurons?

Nerve impulses travel from neuron to neuron via neurotransmitters that are released into the synapse by the sending neuron. The neurotransmitter binds to a receptor on the receiving neuron. When enough receptors are triggered, an action potential is initiated on the receiving neuron.

What carries nerve impulses between neurons?

Nerve impulses are transmitted between neurons via neurotransmittors that are released into the synapse by the sending neuron. The neurotransmittor then binds to a receptor on the receiving neuron; when enough receptors are triggered, an action potential is initiated on the receiving neuron.
