Nerve cell. Confocal light micrograph of a neurone (nerve cell) from a human brain. The cell body (right) has several thin branching dendrites coming from it. The dendrites usually act as the receiving part of a neurone, detecting impulses from other nerve cells and passing them to the cell body. Neurones allow information to be received, interpreted and relayed around the body. Magnification unknown.
