Caption: Astrocyte nerve cells. Light micrograph of astrocyte cells from a human brain. Astrocytes are a type of glial cell. They provide structural support and protection for neurons (nerves cells) and also supply them with nutrients and oxygen. The cells cannot transmit electric signals and so insulate neurons from one another.
