Caption: Purkinje nerve cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two Purkinje nerve cells from the cerebellum of the brain, the part of the brain that controls balance, posture and muscle co- ordination. The cerebellum is composed of outer layers of grey matter and an inner core of white matter. Within the grey matter are Purkinje nerve cells (two large bodies), from which branch many thread-like dendrites. These dendrites relay nerve impulses to the Purkinje cells. Magnification: x1250 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
