Nervous tissue is highly specialised for receiving stimuli and the conduction of electrochemical nerve impulses. it controls and intregates the activities of various parts of the body. thus, nervous tissues has two main characteristics-conduction and intregration. it occurs in the brain, spinal cord and the nerves.the nerve tissue is formed of nerve cells or neurons and nerve fibres.
neurons are the structural and functional unit of nervous tissue. they possess two main special features:
.they perceive stimuli.
.they transmit or conduct nerve impulses from sense organs to brain and from brain to body's motor organs
neuron is differentiated into cyton ,axon and dendrites
