Sensory neuron

Name: Sensory neuron
Description: Neurons that form the division of neurons that transduce stimuli from the environment or non to neuronal parts of the body, and transmits them to other parts of the sensory system, as well as directly or indirectly via the sensory system to the motor, behavioral state, and cognitive systems (Swanson, 2003, p. 187 ff.; Bota and Swanson, 2007, Fig. 3).
Has role: Sensory role of nerve cell
