Nerve cells

Immunofluorescent Light Micrograph of neuron cells and astrocytes in mammalian spinal cord. Here, neuron cells stain red: the cell body appears pink, with nerve fibres faintly seen which are the route of transmission of nerve impulses. In the foreground are astrocyte cells (green): star- shaped connective tissue cells which provide support and nutrients for the neurons. It is thought that astrocytes may take part in infor- mation storage. Blue dots are the nuclei of other support cells. Immunofluorescence is a staining technique which uses antibodies to attach fluores- cent dyes to specific tissues and molecules in the cell. Magnification x400 at 5x7cm, x375 at 6x4.5cm x200 at 35mm
