Cerebellum tissue, light micrograph Featured Print

Cerebellum tissue, light micrograph

Cerebellum tissue. Confocal light micrograph of a section through the cerebellum of the brain. Purkinje cells, a type of neuron (nerve cell), are red. Radial glial cells, a type of support cell, are yellow, and cell nuclei are purple. Purkinje cells consist of a flask-shaped cell body with many branching processes (dendrites) that receive impulses from other cells. Purkinje cells form the junction between the granular and molecular layers of the grey matter of the cerebellum. The radial glial cells provide structural support, and nutrients and oxygen for the Purkinje cells. The cerebellum controls balance, posture and muscle coordination


Immunofluorescent LM of neurons & astrocytes Featured Print

Immunofluorescent LM of neurons & astrocytes

Immunofluorescent Light Micrograph of a network of neurons and astrocyte cells, in brain cortex. In the foreground, nerve fibres of neurons (green) are seen in a fine branching network. These fibres are the routes of transmission of nerve impulses. Astrocytes behind them (orange) are large star- shaped connective tissue cells; as part of the neuroglia ("nerve glue") they provide mechanical support and nutrients for the neurons. Astrocytes may take part in information storage processes. Immunofluorescence is a staining technique which uses antibodies to attach fluorescent dyes to specific tissues and to molecules within the cell. Magnification: x200 at 35mm, x375 at 6x4.5cm


Regenerating nerve cell, TEM Featured Print

Regenerating nerve cell, TEM

Regenerating nerve cell. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a nerve axon (blue) regenerating within a Schwann cell (light brown). The Schwann cell is within the basement membrane (pink) of an old Schwann cell. The Schwann cell's nucleus is green. An axon is a nerve fibre that passes information between nerve cells. The axon is surrounded by a myelin sheath (dark brown), a fatty insulating layer formed by the Schwann cells, which increases the speed at which nerve impulses are carried. Only cells of the peripheral nervous system, and not the central nervous system (CNS), are surrounded by Schwann cells and are able to regenerate after injury
