Pyramidal Cells of Cerebral Cortex
Neuron preparation by Ramón y Cajal
This image shows several cortical pyramidal cells stained brown. The long apical dendrite of each pyramidal cell is quite prominent, extending upward toward the surface of the cerebral cortex.
Other cells of the cortex (both neurons and glia) remain unstained and invisible.
