Caption: Spinal cord. Light micrograph of a section through a healthy spinal cord, showing grey matter (yellow) and white matter (black). The spinal cord is a downward extension of the brain, and is responsible for relaying sensory and motor signals between the brain and the body. The sensory nerves generally lie at the back of the spinal cord (top), exiting it through the dorsal roots (spaces at upper left and right). The front (anterior) of the spinal cord comprises mainly motor neurons, responsible for conscious control of muscles. These are concentrated in the two anterior horns (lower left and right) of grey matter. Magnification: x4.5 when printed 10cm wide.
