Neurons are brain and nerve cells. They mainly consist of an axon, cell body and dendrites. The three types are sensory, motor and relay neurons. We have over 10 billion neurons!

Fun fact: Some animals including elephants and species of whales have more neurons than humans. However, they have lesser neurons in their cerebral cortex (an area of the brain which correlates with intelligence) which is why they are not more intelligent.
