Neurons in the brain Credit: Dr Jonathan Clarke. Pyramidal neurons forming a network in the brain. These are nerve cells from the cerebral cortex that have one large apical dendrite and several basal dendrites.
Hippocampal neuron that has been stripped of its membrane to expose the cytoskeleton, a scaffold that regulates the cell’s growth, stability and movement. The Hippocampus plays a major role for any kind of learning process and memory.
