The glia serve a variety of support functions for neurons. Many of the organelles are found in the soma or cell body. Neurons are different from other cells in that they have axons and dendrites which are used to communicate with other cells. The primary types of protein structures are ion channels and ion pumps. The neural cytoskeleton: the cytoskeleton provides structural support to the neuron, 3 types of filaments make up the skeleton .
