Neurones are specialised cells that conduct nerve impulses as tiny electrical signals[1] . There are three different types of neurone which have slightly different functions. Sensory neurones conduct an impulse from the stimulus to other parts of the nervous system. Intermediate neurons act as a relay (via the CNS) from sensory to motor neurone. Motor neurones control the muscular response.
