Please excuse my intrusion, but I am in need of some basic information
on the way nerves transmit and receive information.  I am currently
doing some work on basic theoretical cyborg systems.

What is the method by which messages are sent to muscles via the nerves?
(electro chemical)?

If it is electro/chemical what sort of levels.  I assume the greater the
level the greater the reaction? 

Can these levels be measured?

Are the same nerves used to transmit as well as to receive?

Any assistance would be very gratefully received
