- Nerve cell
- A cell in the nervous system, that is able to conduct weak electric signals between the brain and the body. A typical neuron consists of a cell body, containing the nucleus and the surrounding cytoplasm (perikaryon); several short radiating processes (dendrites); and one long process (the axon), which terminates in twiglike branches (telodendrons) and may have branches (collaterals) projecting along its course. (NCI).
