Cell communication in the nervous system is finely tuned to respond rapidly to external stimuli, learn from those stimuli, and produce more effective responses in the future. The physical basis for this cell communication is the manipulation of ion gradients via ion pumps and channels, chemical neurotransmission, and synaptic plasticity, all of which are discussed in this chapter.
