The Brain, Neurons and Brain Chemistry
Pyramidal neurons (pyramidal cells) are a type of neuron found in areas of the brain including the cerebral cortex, the hippocampus, and the amygdala. The neuron's cell body is triangular in shape and consists of a single axon with three to five primary dendrites, and multiple branching dendrites and dendritic spines. Pyramidal cells are among the largest neurons in the brain, with cell bodies averaging at around 20 μm in length.
