Person As Nerve, Nerve As Person

a: A neuron ~
b: a miniature person

What: "The neuron is like a miniature person - having a personality, having an array of unlike parts, having actions both spontaneous and upon stimulation. Its actions depend on the convergence of steady states, transient events, built-in weighting factors, and intrinsic tendencies; it speaks finally with one voice, which integrates all that went before."
