They emerge from opposite sides of the cell body. Bipolar neurons are found only as specialized sensory neurons in the eye, ear, or olfactory organs. Unipolar neurons have one process of emerging from the cell body that branches, T-fashion, into two processes. Both processes function together as a single axon. Dendrites emerge from one of the terminal ends of the axon. The trigger zone in a unipolar neuron is located at the junction of the axon and dendrites. Unipolar neurons are mostly sensory neurons....
