Anatomy

ComponentFunction
receptor (receptor end of a dendrite or a specialized receptor cell in a sensory organ) sensitive to an internal or external change
sensory neuron (dendrite, cell body, and axon of a sensory (afferent) neuron) transmits nerve impulse from the receptor to the brain or spinal cord
interneuron (dendrite, cell body, and axon of a neuron within the brain or spinal cord) serves as processing center; conducts nerve impulse from the sensory neuron to a motor neuron
motor neuron (dendrite, cell body, and axon of a motor (efferent) neuron) transmits nerve impulse from the brain or spinal cord to an effector
effector (muscle or gland outside the nervous system) responds to stimulation by the motor neuron and produces the reflex behavioral action
