Caption: Spinal cord. Light micrograph of a cross-section through the human spinal cord. The spinal cord consists of a butterfly-shaped core (brown) known as grey matter, which consists of nerve cells. Surrounding the grey matter is a larger region of white matter, made up of myelinated nerve fibre bundles or tracts. It is the white matter which is largely responsible for transmitting impulses. The spinal cord is wrapped in three layers of membrane called the meninges (outer edge). The cord extends from the stem of the brain to vertebrae of the lower back; 31 pairs of nerves arise along its length, carrying information to and from the brain and body. Magnification: x15 at 6x7cm size.
