The axon is a fiber that extends from the cell body to the terminal endings. The axon is the main conducting unit of the neuron. It conveys electrical and neuron signals long distances that can vary form 0.1 mm to 2m. The longer the axon the faster the information is sent. Some axons split into branches that allow them to get information to different targets. Some axons are wrapped in a Myelin sheet which is made out of insulating membranes. It protects the axon and makes sure other axons don’t interfere with one another. Also it helps to send information faster. Most neurons only have one axon.
