A cell is the simplest form of an organism. They are in every living thing. There are different types of cells, and they move in different ways. Cells have a variety of important functions. Cells are ultimately responsible for the basic functions of life, which include our ability to make proteins move, get nutrition from what we eat, reproduce, reproduce, and metabolize …
The basic structure of a cell is as follows: A cell has a nucleus at the center (of most of them), with some cells having more than one, a cell membrane, and the cytoplasm. The cell membrane is responsible for maintaining homeostasis. The nucleus gives directions to the cell to make protein, which is found in the cytoplasm. Organelles are like a team that work together within a cell to make it function. Most major organelles contain mitochondria, ribosomes, lysosomes, the gogi complex, and the endoplasmic reticulum. Another important factors that some cells regenerate while others do not. The process of regeneration causes them to divide. If the division does not go well, cancer (and, of course other disease) can result.

Nerves, as the name would suggest, are part of the nervous system. A nerve has an axon, a cell body, and dendrites. Nerves are basically groups of cells that send vital signals to different parts of the body. Khan.org says, “If your perceptions indicate danger (‘oh no that house is on fire’), your ability to act on that also depends on your nervous system.” In other words, your ability to perceive relies on your nervous system’s ability to function. The basic unit of the nervous system are those nerve cells. Khan academy clearly states what the basic components of neurons or what nerve cells do. They say the dendrites process and take in information, the axons link to target cells via axon terminals, and a cell body with a nucleus produces proteins.
