def: "The process of cell death in a neuron." [GOC:BHF, GOC:mah]
comment: This term should not be used for direct annotation. The only exception should be when experimental data (e.g., staining with trypan blue or propidium iodide or use of neuron-specific markers) show that neuron death has occurred, but fail to provide details on death modality (accidental versus programmed). When information is provided on the neuron death mechanism, annotations should be made to the appropriate descendant of 'cell death' (such as, but not limited to, GO:0097300 'programmed necrotic cell death' or GO:0006915 'apoptotic process'), and the cell type captured as an annotation extension; or the term GO:0051402 'neuron apoptotic process' may be considered, if appropriate.
