Caption: Spinal cord. Light micrograph of a cross-section through a cat's spinal cord, part of the central nervous system (CNS). The boundary between the two types of tissue that make up the CNS is seen here. Grey matter (at top right), is where the bodies of nerve cells (orange) are visible. These are sur- rounded by supporting cells and numerous nerve fibres (brown). The white matter (at lower left), consists of thousands of nerve fibres running in all directions. Black spots are stained fibres cut in cross section, surrounded by protective myelin sheaths (white). The CNS carries motor and sensory information between the brain and the rest of the body. Magnification: x80 at 6x7cm size.
