1 Microscopic structure – practice 2013
89. Nerve tissue Microscopic structure – practice 2013

2 Nerve tissue - morphology
cells : 1.neurons and 2.glial cells extracellular material is extremely reduced replaced by glial branched process neuropil – high amount of synapses, dendrite´s arborisation, non-myelinated axons extensive vasculature with variable amount of connective tissue both in CNS and PNS blood-brain barrier in CNS

3 Tissue microscopic structure: cells with processes – integrated communicating network
neuron theory – contact junctions among neurons

4 NEURON is structural and functional unit of nerve tissue
N3 – cerebellum,HE NEURON is structural and functional unit of nerve tissue

5 Nerve tissue microstructure (example 2 – brain )
Glial c. Neuron


7 Perikaryon (soma, cell body) receptor region, integration, trophic centre
nucleus large, lightly basophilic, with dispersed chromatin, prominent nucleolus RER abundant → substance of Nissl - tigroid Golgi apparatus only in perikaryon! cytoskeleton (neurofilaments) mitochondria inclusions lipofuscin, melanin

8 Cytoskeleton Microtubules
axonal transport (anterograde, retrograde, microtubule-associated motor proteins used ATP – dynein, kinesin) shape regulation Neurofilaments (intermediate filaments in neurons) resistance against deformations regulatory process Microfilaments (aktin)

9 Dendrites receptor region
principal recieving site arborisation (branching) increases receptive area of the cell ( contacts and more) dendritic spines (site of synapse - postsynaptic membrane, actin microfilaments neurofilaments (NF-L, NF-M, NF-H), other cytoskeleton units, proteosynthetic apparatus except GA always non- myelinated

10 Axon conductive region
transmit stimuli in the form of action potential to other neuron or effector cell 1 neuron has 1 axon metabolically dependent on perikaryon Golgi type I neurons – motor neurons of CNS with long axon (up to 1 meter) terminate on skeletal muscle Golgi type II neurons – short axons axon hillock, initial segment – site of action potential generation axonal transport transport vesicles, mitochondria , proteins…by anterograde x growth factor, retrograde

11 Synapse effector region, unidirectional transmission of nerve impulse
presynaptic (axonal) terminal + postsynaptic (dendritic, somatic, axonal) membrane site of chemical message transmission in response to action potential presynaptic : synaptic vesicles with neurotransmitters, microtubules+kinesin, mitochondria synaptic cleft 40nm postsynaptic membrane of effector cell: nerve cell muscle cell secretory cell axodendritic,axosomatic,axoaxonal, „en passant“

12 Neuroglia supporting sell population for neurons
provide neurons with structural support and maintain local condition for neuronal function forming 50% volume of CNS 10 x more abundant than neurons histological staining impregnation by Ag, Au salts, histochemical technics

13 Glia - types in CNS 1. macroglia astrocytes oligodendrocytes
ependymal cells 2. Microglia in PNS Schwann cells Satelite cells


15 Neurons and neuroglia are cells with processes

16 B45 Brain/Cerebrum LFB, luxol fast blue, myelin staining

17 B44 Brain/ Cerebrum (HE)

18 Neuron, neuroglia, blood vessel

19 N3 - cerebellum HE Purkyňova buňka Granulární neuron

20 B46 Small brain, cerebellum HE

21 Spinal cord / cross section - B48

22 B48 Spinal cord HE

23 Ependym epitheloid arrangement of ependymal cells
neural tube neuropithelium remnant

24 B49 Autonomic ganglion

25 B50 Peripheral nerve

26 Peripheral nerve

27 Myelinated nerve fibres
Eg 13 - Myelinizovaný axon

28 Myelinated nerve fibres
in PNS: axons are invaginated into cytoplasm of enveloping Schwann cell (sheath is formed by layers of modified cell membranes) x in CNS: cell process of oligondrocytes form sheath nodes of Ranvier and internode, 1-2 mm Schmidt-Lanterman´s incisures

29 Nerve fibres axons provided by special connective tissue capsules of ectodermal origin axons: unmyelinated myelinated

30 Astrocytes (protoplasmic, fibrous)
the largest of neuroglia astrocytic end feet- connection to vessels and neurons providing movement of wastes and metabolites to and from neuron regulate ionic concentration in intercellular space contribute to blood-brain barrier (together with tight junctions of endothelal cells) mechanical support of neurons proliferation - glial scar glial fibrillary acidic protein

31 Oligodendrocytes smaller, ↓intermediate fibres, darker nucleus
formation of myelin sheath myelinisation of several axons

32 Microglia the smallest, dark elongated nucleus
they migrate to the sites of dead cells, proliferate, phagocytes (dead cells, cell debris…) mesoderm -derived

33 Ependym epiteloid arrengement uspořádání remnant of neuroepithelium of
neural tube * secretory elements (cerebrospinal fluid) component of choroid plexus of brain ventricles and central canal of spinal cord

34 Unmyelinated nerve fibres

35 N8 – Ganglion HE Satelite cells Neuron

36 Arrangement of nerve tissue in the body, CNS and PNS
clusters of neurons – cell body: layers, columns (grey matter) bundles of axons: tracts, fasciculi, lemnisci (white matter) (grey and white matter differentiation: according to the content of myelin) PNS clusters of neurons: ganglia bundles of axons: cranial spinal peripheral nerves
