The Cell Body is the start of the Cell, where from the dendrites start. There isn't much scientific value to tracing a cell body or CB and when they're not frozen by admins players are encouraged to skip those cubes including a CB inside them. Ganglion cells may have an axon whereas SACs (Starburst amacrine cells) do not have axons.

The admins freeze Cell bodies because as previously stated they hold no scientific value to them and because the AI does a really horrible job at tracing them, merging them with glial, blood vessels and other Cells.
