Types of Neurons
Pseudounipolar neurons, metal impregnation, 500x
- There are three main types of neurons, the first being pseudounipolar.
These have a single process which branches into two close to the perikaryon
(cell body or soma of the neuron). One process, the axon, heads towards
the central nervous system, while the other branch, the dendrite, is peripheral.
- Pseudounipolar neurons are found in spinal and cranial ganglia.
