Motor neurons, light micrograph

Motor neurons, light micrograph. Motor neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body.

Each neuron also has one process called an axon, which passes information to other nerve cells, or to effector cells such as muscle fibres. Magnification: x250 when printed at 10 centimetres wide
