Between the spinal cord and your thumb, would you find the dendrite or he axon of a sensory neurone?

Between spinal chord and thumb.

A stimulus is detected by the sensory receptor. It's then converted into electrical energy and passed down the axon of the sensory neuron to the outside of the spinal chord and into the spinal chord via a synapse connecting the sensory neuron to the relay neuron.

Dendrites are the branches that extend from the ends of neuron that allow them to connect.

It also depends on which direction you're talking about, that was detecting a stimulus, taking the thumb as the receptor. It also has muscles and is therefore an effector. The stimulus will be passed from the spinal chord to the motor neuron, where it is carried along the axon and then passed to the muscle across a neuromuscular junction.
