Caption: Purkinje cell. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of a Purkinje nerve cell from the cerebellum of the human brain. A Purkinje cell is composed of a flask-shaped cell body, seen at centre left, from which branch numerous dendrites (at top - not visible) and a single long axon (emerging from the cell at bottom). Nerve impulses from other neurone cells flow to the Purkinje cell through dendrites. From here the message is passed on through the long axon to other neurone cells deep into the cerebellum. The cerebellum is the largest part of the hindbrain, and is essential for the maintenance of muscle tone, balance, and muscle coordination.
