A neuron is a nerve cell that is the basic building block of the nervous system.
Neurons are similar to other cells in the human body in a number of ways, but
there is one key difference between neurons and other cells. Neurons are specialized
to transmit information throughout the body.
These highly specialized nerve cells are responsible for communicating information in
both chemical and electrical forms. There are also several different types of neurons
responsible for different tasks in the human body.
Sensory neurons carry information from the sensory receptor cells throughout the body
to the brain. Motor neurons transmit information from the brain to the muscles of the body.
Inter neurons are responsible for communicating information between different neurons in the
