Cerebellum tissue. Confocal light micrograph of a section through the cerebellum of the brain showing two types of glial cells (support cells); astrocytes (star-shaped) and radial glial cells (elongated cells). Glial cells provide structural support, and nutrients and oxygen for the neurons (nerve cells). The cerebellum controls balance, posture and muscle coordination.
