Amphid Neurons: are sensory neurons; specifically chemosensory neurons which C.elegans use to sense chemicals. As a result of what these tiny animals sense, they can either decide to move toward the chemical (as with chemical attractants), away from the chemical (as with chemical repellants), or not at all...
