Cerebellum. Light micrograph of a section through part of the cerebellum of the brain. It consists of inner white matter (pink, right) and outer grey matter (purple). The white matter mainly contains axons, which pass nerve impulses to the brain's outer cortex. The grey matter is made up of two layers of neurons (nerve cells), the molecular layer (upper left) and the granular layer (purple). The cerebellum controls sensory perception, motor control and coordination. Magnification: x77 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
