      Neurons in the nervous system receive,integrate and PROCESS the information.
      What meant by processing?How to explain it?

      I am more puzzled about the integrate part than the processing part, dont they sound the same to you. Arent they just sematics. Can you be more specific with a specific system, I dont want to start typing up paragraphs.

      as we know that neurons are the messenger of the nervous system. so they are processing means they are producing signal to inform brain. it may help u out! 🙂

      Neurons process information in the sense that they use neurotransmitter to send messages from one neuron to another. You can find more about this here:

      This article explains in plain simple and easily understandable terms how messages are transmitted:

      doesnt the doctor ask you to follow up in the office. Is your wound ok? You need to go and follow up with your doctor now. Dont waste time with online people.

      A funny word processing. It has two meanings, the primary one being to travel. I could be wrong but I seem to remember the word applies to the movement of the information from neuron to neuron. This is a mainly chemical process something to do with sodium and potassium ions if I remember correctly.
