Neuron

In the human brain, a typical neuron collects signals from other neurons through dendrites and based on those inputs, fires output signal via the its output named axon.
Approximately a neuron "sums" inputs from other neurons and once this exceeds a threshold, it discharges a spike down the axon to the next neurons via so-called synapses.
Each neuron axon endings touch the dendrites of the next neuron forming in the brain a massively parallel network which contains about 10 billion neurons.
