Caption: Nerve cell. Computer artwork of a nerve cell or neuron in a network of other nerve cells. Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body. The cell comprises a body (centre) surrounded by numerous extensions called dendrites, which collect information from other nerve cells or from sensory cells. Each neuron has one process called an axon through which information passes to other nerve cells, or to muscle fibres for example. Two synapses (connections) with axons of other nerve cells can be seen, one on each side of the cell body.
