Basic Neurons

Use this interactive diagram to discover more about the three basic types of neurons. All neurons have the same basic parts (cell body, dendrites, axon) and these parts have the same function. The difference is the location of the neurons (some are found in sensory receptors, some in the brain and spinal cord, and some in the muscles). This is a good starting point for your body book research.
