Following are the 3 types of neurons:

The Afferent Neuron or Sensory Neuron receives information from the sensory receptors and carries the impulse from the sense receptors to the central nervous system. In this example the touch receptors in the skin are relaying information through the Afferent "Sensory" Neuron from the environment to the spinal cord.

The Interneuron or the Associative neuron is the transfer station or the decision making neuron. In the case of the reflex arc the Interneuron would make a decision to respond or not respond based upon the intensity of the stimulus.

The Efferent Neuron of Motor Neuron would then return the impulse back to the muscle or gland that would need to respond.
