Caption: Nerve fibres. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of overlapping nerve fibres. Each fibre is made up of several individual axons. An axon is a long extension from a nerve cell (or neurone) which is the main output process of the cell. Some small neurone cell bodies (rounded) can be seen here alongside the axons. Nerve fibres rapidly relay signals between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and muscles and organs in the body. This allows the body to react quickly to any situation. Magnification unknown.
