Caption: Purkinje nerve cell. Computer-enhanced confocal light micrograph of a Purkinje nerve cell (purple) in the cerebellum of the brain. This cell comprises a flask-shaped cell body from which branch numerous dendrites (purple/blue). Purkinje cells are found at the junction between the granular layer (green, lower right) and the molecular layer (black) of the grey matter of the cerebellum. Nerve impulses flow to a Purkinje cell through its dendrites. The cerebellum controls balance, posture and muscle coordination. Magnification unknown.
