Axon
...  The astrocytes provide the vital support tissue of the central nervous system. The ependymal cells are found in the cavities of the central nervous system, while the oligodendrocytes contain many dendrites and help in insulating the axon. The last type are the microglial cells, which have the function of eradicating foreign substances like bacteria and cleaning the central nervous system of  ...

Parasympathetic Division
...  muscarinic, when triggered, can cause side effects that are detrimental to the body’s proper function. Parasympathetic Ganglia The ganglionic cells of the parasympathetic division have fewer dendrites as compared to that of the sympathetic division. Its preganglionic axons are also few or one for each ganglion. The parasympathetic ganglia are innervated by the cranial and sacral  ...

Neurons
...  have varieties - each having unique structure and function. However, it has few common characteristics. Neurons all have dendrites, enabling receptions and also an axon for the conduction of the nerve pulse. All these types give support (functional and structural) to the other types. Together with neuroglia, they compose the basic cell structure in the CNS, or the central nervous system.  ...
