#18 describe how the unique structure of a neuron relates to it's function in the body

Neurons conduct impulses over relatively long distances in the body. This is facilitated by their long cytoplasmic extenstions.

They contain a nucleus and the usual organelles. Their cytoplasm is drawn out into long processes.
