What are the two kinds of branches that extend from the cell body of a neuron?

Terminal branches (aka end brushes) are at the end of a Motor Nerve (aka Efferent Nerve) and are in very close proximity to the muscle fibers.


What are highly branched cellular processes of a neuron that carry signals towards the cell body of a neuron?

These are called dendrites as they look like the branches of trees.It sounds like you're describing a synaptic transmission.

Is it true that motor neurons pass messages from neuron to neuron?

Yes, an electrical signal is passed from the dendrites of 1 motor neuron, through it's cell body, through it's axon (the long tail looking feature of the neuron). It then travels through branches of the axon and forms synapses with other motor neurons, this is how the electrical signal is passed.


The tree like structures on a neuron are called?

the neuron is composed of 4 parts the cell body which contains the nucleus the axon which carry the information and the terminal button which distribute the neurons the dendrites which are the branches that come out.... the dendrites receive the signal.

Where is the neuron cell in the human body?

Within the nervous system. The brain is obviously packed full of them, whilst the spinal cord and all extending peripheral branches are a network of nerve cells to carry signals between the brain and body.


Sensory neuron is to motor neuron as?

Sensory neuron is to motor neuron...as feedback system is to control system. The motor neurons send signals from the brain to control the body. The sensory neurons send signals from the body back to the brain.
