Caption: Nerve fibres. Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a cross-section through several nerve fibres, or axons. The large axon at upper centre is surrounded by a myelin sheath (black), an insulating fatty layer that increases the speed at which nerve impulses travel. The other axons are unmyelinated.
