What is the function of the nerve cells?

The functions of the nerve cells is to carry messages around our body. To adapt to their job, they are very long and are branched at each end.Nerve cells receive, carry, and pass electrical impulses.Neurons (or nerve cells) are the smallest unit of the nervous system which send signals to the rest of the body to perform what ever function the brain wants it to; such as telling the heart to beat.

What is a cell that can receive and transmit signals?

Actually all cells can send and receive signals. For example every cell has a CD95(FASr) which receives signals from natural killer cells or T cells and results in cell death. Also all cells send signals through cell membrane receptors to neighboring cells. These signals prevent neighboring cell colonies from growing too big.(The lack of these signals is one of the problems with certain cancer cells)

Which sense organ helps us to feel things?

The nervous system helps your body to sense things around it by taking in input from receptor cells, which sense things, and transmit these signals at super-fast speeds to your brain, which processes the signals. These signals are then sent back through the nervous system to muscle cells or another form of output, such as salivary glands.

Axons are nerve fibers which extend as long, slender projections from nerve cells. They transmit electrical and electrochemical signals across the gap at a junction(synapse) between them and the other cell.
