Draw the structure of a neuron and explain its function. (CCE 2011)
- Dendrites: Picking up sensations and transmitting the same to cell body.
- Cell Body:
- Sustaining structure and function of dendrites and axon,
- Functioning as passage¬way for transmission of sensation or impulse to axon.
- Axon: Carrying impulse to another neuron, muscle, gland and organ. A single impulse can be transmitted to several structures with the help of axon terminals.
