Nerve Cells 3D model
A neuron (also known as a nerve cell) is an electrically excitable cell that processes and transmits information through electrical and chemical signals. These signals between neurons occur via synapses, specialized connections with other cells. Neurons can connect to each other to form neural networks. Neurons are the core components of the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system (CNS), and of the ganglia of the peripheral nervous system (PNS).
A typical neuron consists of a cell body (soma), dendrites, and an axon. The term neurite is used to describe either a dendrite or an axon, particularly in its undifferentiated stage. Dendrites are thin structures that arise from the cell body, often extending for hundreds of micrometres and branching multiple times, giving rise to a complex dendritic tree. An axon (also called a nerve fiber when myelinated) is a special cellular extension (process) that arises from the cell body at a site called the axon hillock.
- Approx 34,040 polygons.
- Made entirely with 3 and 4 point polygons.
- Includes separate parts for the different sections of neurons and pathways.
- Although the model includes these parts, this version of the model is not rigged.
- The model has basic UV mapping and no textures are included.
