Nerve cells. Light micrograph of nerve cells (neurons) from the cerebral cortex of the brain. These cells are from the hippocampus, part of the cerebral cortex concernced with memory. The hippocampus is rich in pyramidal cells such as these, which have numerous dendrites trailing fron one end of their cell body and one axon projecting from the other. Dendrites gather information for processing by the cell body. The information is then relayed through the cell's axon. Magnification: x440 at 35mm size.
