Caption: Brain tissue. Light micrograph of a section through the cerebellum of a brain. The cerebellum is in the lower part of the rear of the brain and is largely concerned with movement and balance. Two distinct layers of tissue are visible: the inner granular layer (pale purple, lower frame) and the outer molecular layer (dark purple). Between these is a line of large Purkinje neurones (nerve cells, black, across centre), with long dendritic processes extending into the molecular layer. These neurones transmit and receive nerve signals between the two layers of the cerebellum. Silver stain. Magnification: x32 at 35mm size.
