Definitions for "Impulse"
The act of impelling, or driving onward with sudden force; impulsion; especially, force so communicated as to produced motion suddenly, or immediately.
The effect of an impelling force; motion produced by a sudden or momentary force.

Impulse is a Marvel Comics character created by Fabian Nicieza and Mark Bagley. Impulse first appeared as a member of Psionex in New Warriors vol.1 #4.
Impulse is a bodyspray manufactured by Unilever, an Anglo-Dutch company based in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and London, United Kingdom. Introduced as a 'perfume deodorant' in South Africa in 1972, Impulse was launched in the UK in 1979, including the butterfly design and the slogan "Men can't help acting on impulse."
the electrochemical transmission of a signal along a phloem or a nerve fiber that produces an excitatory or inhibitory response at a target tissue.
A wave of depolarization conducted along a nerve fiber or muscle fiber.
the electrical discharge that travels along a nerve fiber; "they demonstrated the transmission of impulses from the cortex to the hypothalamus"
A term used in weather primarily to describe a weak disturbance that does not necessarily have an associated storm center or surface low. The disturbance usually does not create severe weather and is frequently associated with a marine air push.
(abbrev. IMPL) Alternate term for Upper Level System and Shortwave; a general term for any large-scale or mesoscale disturbance capable of producing upward motion (lift) in the middle or upper parts of the atmosphere.

a short duration signal that goes from zero to a maximum value and back to zero again in a short time
a signal or sound that has a very short (vanishingly short) duration
Action potential and spike are synonyms; an impulse is the regenerative change in the voltage across the neuron's membrane used for long-distance (more than a millimeter) signaling in the nervous system. It is brief (1/1000 sec, quicker than any other signal in the brain but a million times slower than computers) and large (only 1/10 volt but bigger than any other voltage in the brain). Its threshold property can also be used as a simple decision making mechanism. See also axon, myelin.
A signal as received or sent by a timing device. See also Split.
an instinctive motive; "profound religious impulses"
