CAccording to Function

(1) Sensory neurons. In sensory neurons, impulses are transmitted from receptor organs (for pain, vision, hearing, etc.) to the central nervous system (CNS).

(2) Motor neurons. In motor neurons, impulses are transmitted from the CNS to muscles and glands (effector organs).

(3) Interneurons. Interneurons transmit information from one neuron to another. An interneuron "connects" two other neurons.

(4) Others. There are other, more specialized types, for example, in the

CNS.
