By using many different types of neurotransmitter molecules and different types of receptor sites on many different synapses, the nervous system can create a complicated code rather like having many letters in an alphabet to create a language. PAGE 10 Panel 3 The spinal cord is a segmented structure. Each segment has on each side a sensory nerve that receives information from the body and a motor nerve that sends information to the body. A cross-section through the spinal cord shows a darker ‘H’ in the centre that represents the tightly packed neurons.

Ionotropic effects are fast and are used when a quick response is needed such as in moving muscles. 2) Metabotropic effects Metabotropic effects are much slower and longer lasting than ionotropic effects. Metabotropic effects take place by creating a sequence of chemical (metabolic) reactions. When a neurotransmitter locks onto a metabotropic receptor this causes chemical changes inside the neuron that can have a variety of effects from opening an ion channel to switching on the effect of a chromosome.
