Caption: Purkinje nerve cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Purkinje nerve cell from the cerebellum of the brain. The cell comprises a flask-shaped cell body, from which branch numerous thread-like dendrites. Purkinje cells form the junction between the granular and molecular layers of the grey matter of the cerebellum. Nerve impulses are relayed to a Purkinje cell through its dendrites. The cerebellum controls balance, posture and muscle coordination. Magnification: x1700 at 6x7cm size.
