Brain tissue. Light micrograph of a longitudinal section through tissue from the cerebellum of a rat. The cerebellum is a region at the rear and base of the brain, responsible for sensory perception and motor control. Different nerve cell types are seen here. Astrocytes (red, star shaped), are in the grey matter at right. Cell granules and the nuclei of nerve cells are blue. Bergman neuroglia are red (left). Both Bergman neuroglia and astrocytes are a type of glial tissue, helping to support and nourish the surrounding nerve cells.
