What are the three main parts of a neuron and how does an impulse travels through a neuron?

1 Answer


Neurons are structural and functional units of nervous system.


Every neuron has 3 distinctive parts. They are 1. Dendrites, 2. Cyton and 3. Axon.
Impules travel through the axon and then to nerve terminals through which they are passed to another neuron through synapse.
