I know that in the course of evolution, processes that are detrimental usually disappear, and those that are advantageous remain. I also know that most cells in the body can reproduce to replace damaged portions of an organ or to accomplish growth. I also know that all living cells need glucose and oxygen to make ATP. Neurons can do none of these things. What could possibly be the advantage of these "deficiencies" in the neuron.I am desperate! Thanks so much for your answer.
