  • The neurons of the brain extend axons and dendrites many hundreds of micrometres away from the cell body. The first electron microscope studies of these processes revealed that many of the structures that are found in the cell body are also present in dendrites. For example, particles resembling ribosomes and membrane structures like those of the endoplasmic reticulum (two structures that are important for protein synthesis) were seen in distal regions of dendrites, near synapses. Subsequent… CONTINUE READING
