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.
