Axons and dendrites?

There are 2 types OS nerve fibers, called axons and dendrites. The axons carry nerve impulses away from the cellbody, while dendrites carry them towards the cell body.

Microscopic fiber that carries the nervous impulse along nerve cell?

Some nerve cells have fibers that grow out of the cell, which are called axons. Axons allow a nerve cell to connect to distant parts of the body, so that cells in the brain can send messages to, and receive messages from a toe, for example, which might be six feet away from the brain. Other nerve cells just connect to their immediate neighboring nerve cells, and therefore do not require axons; they instead have smaller extensions called dendrites.
