Which of the following structures of the neuron is NOT paired correctly with its structure and function?
Axon terminal — a small branched extension that contains neurotransmitters and sends signals to the presynaptic neuron.
Axon — long extension that transmits the action potential from the axon hillock to the axon terminal.
Axon hillock — cone-shaped structure that joins the cell body to the axon and initiates the action potential.
Dendrite — highly branched extensions that receive the signal from the presynaptic neuron.
Soma — the cell body of the neuron that contains the nucleus and most of the neurons other organelles.
