• Hello

Draw the structure of a neuron and explain its function.


The neuron consists of three parts:

  • Dendrites
  • Cell body, and
  • Axon

Dendrites is a filamentous structure present, they acquire information from multiple neurons around it and pass the information to the cell body.

The cell body has multiple dendrites present in it, and the cell body passes information from the dendrite to the axon.

The axon has a long tube-like structure and axon endings which pass the information to the next neuron via synapse.
