Caption: White matter. Light micrograph of white matter from the spinal cord. White matter consists of bundles of axons (horizontal lines), nerve fibres that carry information around the central nervous system. The axons are covered in a myelin sheath, which greatly increases the speed at which the electric impulses are carried. Also in the white matter are glial cells, which support the nerve cells. Magnification: x450 when printed at 10 centimtres wide.
