You searched for: “cytodendrite”
One of the threadlike extensions of the cytoplasm of a neuron, which typically branch into tree-like processes.
In unipolar and bipolar neurons, there is a single dendrite, which proximally resembles an axon but branches distally; in multipolar neurons there are many short, branching dendrites. Dendrites compose most of the receptive surface of a neuron.
