Sensory neurones receive electrical impulses from the receptors in response to the stimuli which carries this information to the spinal cord (relay neurone)

A sensory neurone will carry the signal or impulse from the receptor to the CNS (central nervous system).

The sensory neurone is responsible for carrying electrical impulses (nerve impulses) from the receptor to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). The receptor detects the change in the environment and the sensory neurone helps by sending this message to the central nervous system to decide on a response.

The sensory neurone is a nerve cell that receives information via its receptors and sends impulses to the relay neurone and is apart of what is known as a reflex arc or reflex action.
