Membrana Limitans Gliae Perivascularis. Three-Dimensional View
  • Radivoj V. Krstić


This plate provides a clearer impression of the relationship between a nerve cell (1) and protoplasmic astrocytes (2), an oligodendrocyte (3), and blood capillaries (4). A nerve cell normally has several branching dendrites (5) and an axon (6). Short, cut boutons terminaux (7) of other nerve cells are located both on dendrites and on the axon, forming synapses with the depicted neuron.
