Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of neurones (nerve cells) from the cerebral cortex, the outer, heavily folded, grey matter of the brain. Neurones exist in varying sizes & shapes throughout the nervous system, but all have a similar basic structure consisting of a large central cell body & 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. In the cerebral cortex, neurones of similar structure are arranged in a variable number of layers. Magnification: X 200 at 35mm size.
