Name the part of a neuron where information is acquired.

The dendritic tip sets off a chemical reaction that creates an electrical impulse. These signals will accumulate in the cell body, or soma, of the neuron after being received by the dendrites. Dendrites are one of two types of protoplasmic protrusions that extrude from the cell body of a neuron, the other type being an axon. Axons can be distinguished from dendrites by several features including shape, length, and function.
