Nerve cell- Nerve cells are also known as neurons.
A neuron consists of 3 parts.
(i) Cell body − It contains a nucleus and cytoplasm.
(ii) Axon − It is a long part arising from the cell body. It transmits impulses away from the cell body.
(iii) Dendrites − These are short, branched parts arising from the cell body. They receive the nerve impulses.
