Definition Unipolar brush cells are characterized by Unipolar brush cells are characterized by having one dendrite that terminates in a paintbrush-like structure of dendrioles that receives input from a single mossy fiber terminal. The axon usually emanates from the opposite pole, branches 1-3 times and ends in mossy terminals. They were defined by E. Mugnaini and his colleagues in the 1990s.
