Caption: Nerve cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two nerve cells or neurones (red) in the grey matter of the spinal cord. The neurones are surrounded by supportive nerve tissue (light brown). Each neurone has a large central part called a cell body which contains the nucleus of the cell. Extending from each cell body are two long, thin processes known as axons and dendrites. Each neurone has a single axon but may have numerous dendrites. The axon is responsible for carrying impulses (messages) away from the cell body, while dendrites carry impulses towards it. Grey matter consists of cell bodies, dendrites and supportive tissue. Magnification unknown.
