I wouldn't put "sensory neuron" as an example here because we want to classify along only one axis. Sensory, motor etc are functional roles that will be assigned to particular classes and so used to generate a class "sensory neuron". But we are trying to keep our hierarchies as single inheritance tree,a neuron can have only one asserted parent. MM
