There are several types of nerve cells (neurons) in the nervous system. One way to classify neurons is by the extensions (also called processes) that project out of the cell body. Multipolar neurons have many "dendrites" that extend from the cell body. Unipolar (or pseudounipolar) neurons have only a single extension from the cell body (this extension branches further away from the cell body).

Can you find the unipolar neuron in this "sea" of multipolar neurons? Just CLICK on the unipolar neuron or go directly to the ANSWER.
