If multicellular animals contain elongated nerve cells, called neurons, collected together into parallel bundles called nerve trunks. There are three common types of neurons: motor, sensory and connector. A connector or associational neuron consists of a cell body, one axon and numerous dendrities. Connector neurons occur exclusively in the central nervous system and serve as the immediate links or cross connections between numerous sensory and motor neurons. If this cell has become defective then there will be no conduction of nerve impulses to other neurons or to muscles or glands.
