Caption: Purkinje nerve cells. Light micrograph of a section through a row of Purkinje nerve cells from the brain's cerebellum. Each Purkinje cell is composed of a flask-shaped cell body (black, lower frame) from which branch numerous dendrites (upper frame). Purkinje cells are arranged between the junction of the molecular and granular layers of the cerebellum. Nerve impulses flow to the Purkinje cells through their dendrites. From here the message is passed on to the white matter deep in the cerebellar cortex. The cerebellum, the largest part of the hindbrain, controls balance, posture and muscle coordination. Cajal stain. Magnification: x200 at 6x7cm size.
