This is a medium-power view of a single multipolar neuron. In this
view, it is difficult to tell which of the processes coming from the neuron
are axons and which are dendrites. However, many neural fibers (axons)
can be seen in the background.
Notice the nucleus within the cell body, with a prominent
nucleolus. Dark purple staining Nissl bodies can be seen in the
cytoplasm. The smaller cells in this image are neuroglia.
