Pyramidal neurons. Illustration of pyramidal nerve cells from the cerebral cortex of the brain. Pyramidal cells are so named for their triangular cell bodies. Each cell body has numerous processes (dendrites) that collect and transmit information from other nerve cells and sensory cells. Each cell body also has an axon leading from it, through which it passes information to other cells.
