Developing nerve cells

These developing mouse nerve cells have a nucleus (yellow) surrounded by a cell body, with long extensions called axons and thin branching structures called dendrites. Electrical signals travel from the axon of one cell to the dendrites of another. Image courtesy of Torsten Wittmann, University of California, San Francisco. Part of the exhibit Life:Magnified by ASCB and NIGMS.
