rain cells work like an organic supercomputer they keep everything going, from breathing to solving riddles. And now, researchers have for the first time described how nerve cells manage to transmit signals practically simultaneously.The cells of the nervous system communicate using small molecule neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and noradrenalin.
