Caption: Nerve cells. Light micrograph of a section of the small intestine showing the nerve cells (neurons, black) of the myenteric or Auerbach's plexus. This network of cells controls local intestinal wall movement. When the wall is stretched, or dilated, by its contents, nerves in the plexus cause the muscles above the dilation to contract and those below it to relax, resulting in a wave- like movement (peristalsis) of the gut contents towards the anus. The nerves are arranged in ganglia, groups of cell bodies connected by long projections known as axons and dendrites. Prepared using a silver tissue stain. Magnification: x50 at 6x7cm size x25 at 35m size.
