Science / Biology / Neurons: Highly specialized cells that generate and transmit bioelectric impulses from one part of the body to another; the functional unit of the nervous system. A cell of the nerve tissue having a cell body input zone of dendrites and an output zone of an axon (of varying length). The electrochemical nerve impulse/message is transmitted by neurons.
Science / Biology / Interneurons: Neurons that process signals from one or more sensory neurons and relay signals to motor neurons. Aka connector neurons. MORE
Science / Biology / Motor Neurons: Neurons that receive signals from interneurons and transfer the signals to effector cells that produce a response. Nerve cells connected to a muscle or gland. Sometimes also known as effector neurons. MORE
