The cells in nervous tissue that generate and conduct impulses are called neurons or nerve cells. These cells have three principal parts: the dendrites, the cell body, and one axon.

Which body part is not composed nervous tissue?

Why nervous tissue is not a connective tissue?

  • Red blood cells carry oxygen.
  • White blood cells ward off infection.
