Medical Animation of Neurons (in Maya)

i am currently working on a short animation to describe how the neural system works and how amphetamines affect the whole system.
I want to make an introduction very similar to this animation:
Everything is modelled but i struggle with the Glowing Effect to show how energy travels through.
What i already tried is to make a curve along the path and let an object (Cube or Sphere) travel along this path. The object then uses a surface shader with Glow. But it doesnt look that good as in the video.
A screenshot of my current status:

It would be great if the glow really affects the other material.
Do you have any other suggestions to make this look that great? Or is it easier to do it in Compositing?
