recieves stimuli or impulse
space btw schwann cell
In the PNS they are always motor neurons, found also in the CNS, take messages away form the brain (efferent)
carrier impulse away from cell body and towards axon terminal
only sensory neurons that are not unipolar, are interneurons used in olfactory (smell) and optic (sight), found in the brain
found in CNS- takes up excess neurotransmitter- nourishes- Blood-Brain barrier- filters toxins
impulse is strong enough this is triggered
nucleus with cytoplasm and cell organells
plasma membrane surrounding myelin, regenerates nerve fibers
always in sensory or afferent (to the brain)
