Caption: Neuroglia cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of cultured neuroglia cells (blue). These cells are found in nervous tissue and support nerve fibres both structurally and metabolically. The green cells underneath them are fibroblastic cells with tiny microvilli. Immature neuroglia are rounded, but develop long processes as they mature, which attach them to nerve cells. They may also attach to each other, as seen here. Neuroglia cells make up around half the mass of the central nervous system. Magnification: x1200 at 6x7cm size.
