    A neuron transfers information in the form of an electrical impulse. Is this True or False?

    A neuron does transfer information in the form of an electrical impulse. This is most commonly called an action potential. Action potentials are the primary way how the brain communicates. Each neuron is connected to another neuron by a synapse. An action potential occurs when the otherwise negatively charged neurons get sufficiently positively charged (also called depolarization) which then triggers a cascade of events inside the neuron.
