Caption: Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of neurones (nerve cells) from the human cerebral cortex (the outer, heavily folded, grey matter of the brain). Neurones exist in varying sizes & shapes throughout the nervous system, but all have similar basic structure; a large central cell body (large, light grey bodies) containing a nucleus & processes of 2 types: a single axon (a nerve fibre) which is the effector part of the cell that terminates on other neurones (or organs), & one or more dendrites, smaller processes that act as sensory receptors. Similar types of neurones are arranged in layers within the cerebral cortex. Mag: X 3,000 at 8x8 inch, X 890 at 6x6cm size.
