Medical Definition of Dendritic process

1. A long, branching outgrowth or extension from a neuron, that carries electrical signals from synapses to the cell body, unlike an axon that carries electrical signals away from the cell body. Each nerve cell usually has many dendrites. This classical definition, however, lost some weight with the discovery of axo-axonal and dendro-dendritic synapses. (29 Sep 1997)
