NINDS Brain Trauma Research
... NINDS grantees developed a device that simulates the condition of trauma in cells in culture ... researchers to control the degree of injury to the cells and then study the biological and physiological responses those cells have to trauma ... The neuron is the main functional cell of the brain and nervous system, consisting of a cell body (soma), a tail or long nerve fiber (axon), and projections of the cell body called dendrites ...
Mesenchymal Stem Cell - Characteristics - Morphology
... Mesenchymal stem cells are characterized morphologically by a small cell body with a few cell processes that are long and thin ... The cell body contains a large, round nucleus with a prominent nucleolus, which is surrounded by finely dispersed chromatin particles, giving the nucleus a clear appearance ... The remainder of the cell body contains a small amount of Golgi apparatus, rough endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, and polyribosomes ...
Dentate Nucleus - Structure - Morphology - Large Principal Neurons
... to position within the dentate, shape of soma (cell body), and dendritic branching ... of these neurons have a tetrahedron shape with the cell body in one corner ... The upper part of the cell body is parallel to the apical dendrites, which are oriented toward the nuclear core ...
Long-term Potentiation - Properties - Synaptic Tagging
... that the protein synthesis underlying L-LTP occurred in the cell body ... Further, there was thought that the products of this synthesis were shipped cell-wide in a nonspecific manner ... It thus became necessary to explain how protein synthesis could occur in the cell body without compromising LTP's input specificity ...
Axoplasmic Transport
... of mitochondria, lipids, synaptic vesicles, proteins, and other cell parts (i.e ... organelles) to and from a neuron's cell body, through the cytoplasm of its axon (the axoplasm) ... Axons, which can be 1,000 or 10,000 times the length of the cell body, were originally thought to contain no ribosomes or means of producing proteins ...

Famous quotes containing the words body and/or cell:

    All are but parts of one stupendous whole,
    Whose body Nature is, and God the soul;
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Let man consider what he is in comparison with all existence; let him regard himself as lost in this remote corner of nature; and from the little cell in which he finds himself lodged, I mean the universe, let him estimate at their true value the earth, kingdoms, cities, and himself. What is a man in the infinite?
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
