Forgive me but when I look at neurone diagrams, they are basically the same.
What's the real difference?

Axon leads away from the cell body. Dendron/dendrites lead towards

Dendrites take in signals from other neurons or external environments, whereas the Axon transmits these signals to other neurons or body parts such as muscles. If you look at the diagrams the dendrites usually surround the cell body or Soma (in Multi-polar and pyramidal neurons, multi-polar been the common example used.) whereas the Axon protrudes away from it. There is only ever one Axon, though multiple dendrites.Last edited by Anatomically Ace; 22-08-2016 at 19:58.
