transmit electrical signals
don't divide, longevity, high metabolic rate
around the nucleus
chromatophilic (Nissl) bodies
clusters of rough ER and free ribosomes
if signal reaches this = action potential
bundles of intermediate filaments, connect nissl bodies
no nissl bodies, transport substances to and from the cell body
end in knobs called axon terminals
btwn axon terminals of one neuron and dendrites of another, most common
