Cell Body: Dendrites: Myelin: Node of Ranvier: Nucleus: Synaptic Terminal: The part of the cell that contain the nucleus. Extension from the neuron cell body that take information to the cell body. Fatty Substance that surround some axons. Gaps in the myelination of axons The end of the axon containing vesicles with neurotransmitters.
