A neuron, also known as a neuron (British spelling) and nerve cell, is an electrically excitable cell that receives, processes, and transmits information through electrical and chemical signals. 
Dendrites are the structures on the neuron that receive electrical messages. These signals will accumulate in the cell body, or soma, of the neuron after being received by the dendrites.
Axon, also called nerve fiber, the portion of a nerve cell (neuron) that carries nerve impulses away from the cell body. A neuron typically has one axon that connects it with other neurons or with muscle or gland cells.
