do dendrites generate or conduct impulses
and do axons transmit to and from the cell body or do they transmit it away.
The neuron cell body and the dendrites are the recipients of the stimulation from other cells. Once a neuron fires, it goes in all directions within the neuron, like the ripples on a pond. However, transmission to other cells only occurs at the ends of the axons.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
ok heres what i got from the book.
the post synaptic neuron receives a chemical signal and generates the electrical signal.
for the axon problem my teacher said sensory neurons transmit a signal along its axon to the cell body. The motor neuron tranmits a electrical signal away from the cell body to an effector.
