The sensory neuron transmits signals from the senses (e.g. touch, taste and smell) to the brain . The sensory neuron receives a stimuli from an environmental or chemical change in the environment, which is captated by receptors, whom convert the stimuli into a chemical message that passes through the sensory neurons to the CNS. Here the message is received by another neuron called therelay neuron.
