Caption: Neuron. Scanning electron micrograph of a nerve cell with a branching axon. On the right is the cell body, which contains the nucleus. The axon conducts electrical signals from the cell body to other nerve cells. The human brain consists almost entirely of billions of cells like this, joined together with such complexity that its workings remain a mystery to science. Magnification x485 at 5x7cm size.
