Caption: Maturing ovarian follicles. Light micrograph of a section through an ovary showing primordial follicles (light purple). Each primordial follicle contains an oocyte (spotty, circular) with a single layer of flattened granulosa cells around it. These follicles mature during each menstrual cycle into secondary follicles surrounded by many granulosa cells. One secondary follicle per month becomes a Graafian follicle, releasing its oocyte at ovulation. Magnification: x560 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
