Bipolar Neuron

Bipolar Neuron This structure is a bipolar neuron. Neurons can be classified according to the number of processes that extend from the neuronal cell body (soma). There are three main types of neurons found in humans according to this classification: Bipolar Multipolar Pseudounipolar Unipolar neurons, as the name suggests, only have one process emerging from the cell. Humans do not have true unipolar cells, but instead have pseudo-unipolar cells. An example of pseudounipolar cells in humans is that of dorsal root ganglion cells. They are called pseudounipolar cells because although one process extends from the cell body, this single process …
