    The student will understand:

    1. The nervous system is responsible for sensing and responding to stimuli in order to maintain homeostasis.
    2. Multiple types of nervous system cells allow differentiation of functions.
    3. Changes in membrane potential allows for initiation and transmission of signals.
    4. Neural cells communicate with each other, and other types of cells, through synaptic transmission involving neurotransmitters and allowing for signal regulation.
