A neuron is a cell that carries electrical impulses. It is the basic cell of the nervous system.

In this post, I will try to show you how to make the neuron cell model along with the labeling of each part of the neuron network.

Every neuron cell model is made up of a cell body, dendrites and axons, which are the neuron fibres.

The neurons carry impulses to the brain. Without the function of the neuron, there will be no transmission of information.

This topic is usually covered in the class 10 or Grade 11 in your science exhibitions.


Materials required To Make Artificial Neuron Model

  • Cardboard
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Foam sheet
  • Fevicol
  • Beads
  • Hot glue gun
  • Name tags

You use the resource/tools page section to find the tips where you can buy these materials used at a reasonable cost.


In this video, I will show you on how to make the neuron 3d model ideas step by step that helps you get a good understanding as well easy to do it yourself

Questions and Answers:

  • What is a neuron?
  • A neuron is a cell in the human body that carries electrical impulses to the brain. It is the fundamental unit of the nervous system.
  • Neurons are connected to each other and tissues, they do not touch each other instead they have tiny gaps called synapses.  These gaps are filled with chemicals.
  • What are the different types of neurons?
  • Neurons can be divided into three classes based on their connection.
  • The three classes are afferent, efferent and interneurons. Afferent neurons play the role of carrying information from the tissues and organs to the central nervous system.
  • Efferent neurons transmit signals from the central nervous system to the effector cells.
  • Interneurons connect within the central nervous system. By function, neurons can be divided into three types, sensory neurons, relay neurons, and motor neurons. Sensory neurons transmit the signals between the sense organs and the brain.
  • Relay neurons carry messages between the central nervous system and the other neurons and motor neurons are connected to the CNS.
  • What are the different parts of the neuron?
  • All neurons are known to consist of three essential parts: a cell body, an axon and dendrites. The cell body, also known as the soma is the neuron’s core. It carries genetic information.
  • It contains a nucleus and specialized organelles.
  • An axon is a long tail like structure, which joins the cell body at a specialized junction, axon hillock.
  • The fibrous roots that branch out from the plant body are called dendrites.
  • What are the functions of the neuron?
  • Neurons are responsible for the action potential that is shifted between neurons, etc. it helps to send synaptic and electrical to the brain.


The video demonstrates how to make a NEURON STRUCTURE (neural network 3d model ) using the cardboard cut-out for a science project. It requires basic waste products at home, but sometimes you may need something.

Hence while watching the video the viewer will be thinking about what was incorporated.
