Motor neuron

In vertebrates, the term motor neuron (or motoneuron) classically applies to neurons located in the central nervous system (or CNS) that project their axons outside the CNS and directly or indirectly control muscles. Motor neuron is often associated with efferent neuron, primary neuron, or alpha motor neurons.
