Caption: Intervertebral disc. Light micrograph of a transverse section through an intervertebral disc (red) and the surrounding tissue (brown). Intervertebral discs are found between the vertebrae, the bones that make up the spine. Surrounding the disc is the synovial cavity. The cartilage of the disc acts as a shock absorber, and the synovial fluid reduces the friction in the joint during movement. Magnification: x36 when printed at 10 centimetres high.
