  2. Interneuron
    Neuron that conveys impulses within the Central Nervous System (CNS)
  3. Sensory Neuron
    Neuron that conveys impulses along afferent pathways to the Central Nervous System for interpretation
  4. Motor neuron
    Neuron that conveys impulses along efferent pathways from the Central Nervous System to an effector (muscle or gland)
  5. Bipolar Neuron
    Neuron that has two processes, an axon and a dendrite, that extend from opposite sides of the body
