Neurons (or nerve cells) are “electrically excitable cells” that process and transmit information through electrical and chemical signals. The brains of all species are composed primarily of two broad classes of cells: neurons and glial cells. The glial cells (neuroglia) are the supporter cells, or the “glue” that holds the neurons together.

Mirror neurons are neurons that “fire” when observing an action and when performing an action, this allows for learning through imitation (“mirroring”).
