I've recently became interested in the human nervous system so I'm learning about the basics.
Pretty much every source states that a pseudounipolar neuron has got one axon that is split into an afferent and efferent part.
The thing is due to the axon's and dendrites' definition this makes zero sense since
-axon: it is a process along which impulses travel away from the cell's body
-dendrites: are branched protoplasmic extensions of a nerve cell that propagate the electrochemical stimulation received from other neural cells to the cell body, or soma, of the neuron from which the dendrites project.

So a branched axon can't really be split into an actual axon and dendrites on the other end because it has to be strictly afferent.
Please help me understand what I'm not getting
