Hi:

Recently a lot of studies have focused on the dendritic tree of neuron. 
More and more knowledge is getting regarding its function. However, not 
every neuron has a dendrite. My impression (I maybe wrong) is that 
unipolar neuron and bipolar neuron do not have dendrite. (Multipolar 
neuron is the neuron which has dendrite and is the typical neuron).

I am curious how those neurons without dendrite get around those 
important "dendrite functions". Could anybody give me more information?

Thank you very much.


Sincerely,
Xiaoshen
