    So in a motor neurone the cell body is located on one end, but in a sensory neurone, out is located in the middle but WHY? I thought it could be possibly to do with the motor neurone needs a larger surface area (SA) to collect impulses so by attaching dendrites around the cell, this could happen? But then surely sensory neurone needs large SA too?
