Connector neurons, also called interneurons, connect sensory neurons to motor neurons. They interpret the impulses received from sensory neurons and determines the appropriate response to the stimuli. It then passes this impulse along to motor neurons. Interneurons are located in the spinal cord or the brain.
Just to give a sense of scale, there are about 100 billion interneurons in the brain, each averaging 1000 synapses. The word interneuron is a catch all-term as there are many different kinds, the total number is unknown, but certainly in the hundreds.
