Caption: Purkinje nerve cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two Purkinje nerve cells from the cerebellum of the brain. Each 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: x1310 when printed 10cm wide.
