Pyramidal nerve cell

How to draw a pyramidal nerve cell

Learn how to draw a pyramidal nerve cell or neuron anatomy structure outline drawing step-by-step tutorial guide for science students.

What You Will Need

  • An A4 size plain white paper.
  • A pencil.
  • An eraser.

You can download the high-resolution Pyramidal Nerve sketching for your school projects & also available for commercial usage on the web, YouTube. Print is only allowed for personal use.

Please note: use a light HB pencil to draw all the shapes. Once it is perfect, you can add a second layer with a dark tone. For this tutorial purpose, I’m using the dark outline.

Step 1: Draw a triangle shape without being connected at the end, like in the image below.

Step 2: Draw the circle inside the triangle shape.

Step 3: Draw a small black hole inside the circle.

Step 4: Draw the curved lines from the end of the triangle shape.

Step 7: Draw the third shape of the nerve root shapes like in the image below.
