Caption: Nerve cell growth. Coloured light micrograph of 3-week old, nerve cell (neuron) clusters. These cell clusters have been grown in culture. The nerve cell bodies are clustered in 3 groups (large, round patches) and the neurites (either axons or dendrites, lines) can be seen connecting the clusters to form the beginnings of a network. Neurons transmit electrical nerve signals around the body. These neurons have been grown from NT2 cells, a human teratocarcinoma (cancer) cell line, capable of differentiation into nerve cells. Research like this may lead to methods of neural regeneration that could treat spinal paralysis and other nerve disorders. For images showing a 1-week old neuron cluster see P360/0572-0574. Magnification: x50 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
