Cortical Neurons and Conducting Velocity
Cortical neurons are the neurons present in the cerebral and cerebellar cortex.
Neurons or nerve cells are electrically excitable cells that receive and transmit impulses (such as action potential).
Conduction velocity is the velocity at which impulses are transmitted along an excitable tissue.
