Caption: Nerve cells. Artwork of a variety of nerve cells. The cell body of a neuron (dark blue) is at lower centre. It is surrounded by neuroglia, supportive cells with no conductive role. These include the small brown cell at upper centre, an astrocyte, which supports and protects the neuron. The pale blue/green glial cells are oligodendrocytes. These produce myelin, a fatty substance which coats axons, the main output processes of neurons. One myelinated axon is seen running from bottom right to centre left, where it meets a dendrite at a synapse (nerve junction). The dendrite relays its signal to the cell body, which processes it and relays it through it own axon (upper right).
