Nerve synapse, TEM Featured 20 May 2005 Print

Nerve synapse, TEM

Nerve synapse. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the neuron (nerve) terminal at a synapse in the diaphragm. A synapse is a gap between a nerve and another cell (in this case, muscle) that allows the transmission of nerve impulses. A nerve ending in a terminal bouton (red) will contain vesicles (blue dots) of neurotransmitter chemicals. During the transmission of an impulse, the vesicles release the neurotransmitter into the gap, which is taken up by receptors on the other side. This leads to the formation of an impulse in the second cell, and so the information is passed on. When a muscle cell is receiving an impulse, calcium is also released, which causes a muscle contraction

Brandon Estate, Southwark, one of the largest of the London County Couincils housing estates

Brandon Estate, Southwark, one of the largest of the London County Couincil's housing estates. There are six 18-storey blocks which rise to 170 ft to give a fine view over London, and a feature of these blocks are the penthouses, of which there are four in each comprising bed-sitting room flats, and sixty-four 3-room flats. Each flat has its own private balcony, constant hot water and warm air central heating. The estate covers an area of 36 acres to the south-east of Kennington Park, and replaces an area of dingy 19th century houses interspersed with bombsites. As wells the tall blocks, there are mainsonettes and two-storey houses for families who want gardens, bungalows for old people.
