A working knowledge of anatomy can be very useful to predatory animals, and, in fact, some of the earliest cave paintings depict crude drawings of animals with arrows pointing to the region of the heart. Not too surprisingly, the two organs that have received the most sustained interest have been the heart and the brain—the two organs that represent the most vulnerable targets for attack. It was, perhaps, because of this common denominator that teachers such as Aristotle tended to view these organs as a functional pair; Aristotle believed that the brain served as a sort of radiator for cooling the blood. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.

They represent residual bodies, which are lysosomes packed with partially degraded lipoprotein material corpora amylacea. Dendrites Dendrites are highly branched, usually short processes that project from the soma see Fig. The branching patterns of many dendritic arrays are probably established by random adhesive interactions between dendritic growth cones and afferent axons that occur during development.
There is an overproduction of dendrites in early development, which is pruned in response to functional demand as the individual matures and information is processed through the dendritic tree. There is evidence that dendritic trees may be plastic structures throughout adult life, expanding and contracting as the traffic of synaptic activity varies through afferent axodendritic contacts.
Groups of neurones with similar functions have a similar stereotypical tree structure Fig. Dendrites differ from axons in many respects. They represent the afferent rather than the efferent system of the neurone, and they receive both excitatory and inhibitory axodendritic contacts. They may also make dendrodendritic and dendrosomatic connections see Fig.
Synapses occur either on small projections called dendritic spines or on the smooth dendritic surface. Dendrites contain ribosomes, smooth endoplasmic reticulum, microtubules, neurofilaments, actin filaments and 12 Motor end-plate Schwann cell Fig.
Golgi complexes. The neurofilament proteins of dendrites are poorly phosphorylated. Dendrite microtubules express the microtubule-associated protein MAP-2 almost exclusively, in comparison with axons. Dendritic spine shapes range from simple protrusions to structures with a slender stalk and expanded distal end.
Free ribosomes and polyribosomes are concentrated at the base of the spine. Ribosomal accumulations near synaptic sites provide a mechanism for activity-dependent synaptic plasticity through the local regulation of protein synthesis. Axons The axon originates either from the soma or from the proximal segment of a dendrite, at a specialized region called the axon hillock see Fig.
Action potentials are initiated here. Courtesy of Martin Sadler and M. The nuclei are euchromatic and vesicular, with prominent nucleoli. The small nuclei scattered in the surrounding neuropil are characteristic of the various categories of neuroglial cell. The axon hillock is unmyelinated and often participates in inhibitory axo-axonal synapses.
This region of the axon is unique because it contains ribosomal aggregates immediately below the postsynaptic membrane.
When present, myelin begins at the distal end of the axon hillock. Myelin thickness and internodal segment lengths are positively correlated with axon diameter.
Nodes of Ranvier are specialized constricted regions of myelin-free axolemma where action potentials are generated and where an axon may branch. The density of sodium channels in the axolemma is highest at the nodes of Ranvier and very low along internodal membranes.
In contrast, sodium channels are spread more evenly within the axolemma of unmyelinated axons. Fast potassium channels are also present in the paranodal regions of myelinated axons. The terminals of an axon are unmyelinated. They expand into presynaptic boutons, which may form connections with axons, dendrites, neuronal somata or, in the periphery, muscle fibres, glands and lymphoid tissue.
They may themselves be contacted by other axons, forming axo-axonal presynaptic inhibitory circuits. Further details of neuronal microcircuitry are given in Kandel and Schwartz Axons contain microtubules, neurofilaments, mitochondria, membrane vesicles, cisternae and lysosomes; they do not usually contain ribosomes or Golgi complexes, except at the axon hillock. However, ribosomes are found in the neurosecretory fibres of hypothalamo-hypophysial neurones, which contain the mRNA of neuropeptides.
Organelles are differentially distributed along axons; for instance, there is a greater density of mitochondria and membrane vesicles in the axon hillock, at nodes and in presynaptic endings.
Axonal microtubules are interconnected by cross-linking microtubuleassociated proteins MAPs , of which tau is the most abundant.
Microtubules have an intrinsic polarity: in axons, all microtubules are uniformly oriented with their rapidly growing ends directed away from the soma and toward the axon terminal. Neurofilament proteins ranging from high to low molecular weights are highly phosphorylated in mature axons, whereas growing and regenerating axons express a calmodulin-binding membrane-associated phosphoprotein and growth-associated protein GAP , as well as poorly phosphorylated neurofilaments.
The glial microenvironment of a damaged central axon does not facilitate regrowth, and reconnection with original synaptic targets does not normally occur.
