In infants and children, blood makes up a higher percentage, while in obese people it makes up less. WHAT ARE RED BLOOD CELLS AND WHAT DO THEY DO?

Today we have photographs taken through an electron microscope capable of enlarging the cell thousands of times. Some of the newer microscopic and photographic techniques give added dimension and texture to the pictures and have taught scientists a great deal.

The processes of impulse conduction and synaptic transmission will be discussed in detail in the Chapter on the nervous system. Jt:. 13 (a) Synapses between neurones. (b) Diagram of the electron microscopic appearance of one type of synapse. (c) Conventional diagrammatic representation of a chain of neurones. Neurones which have only one long dendrite (and one axon) are called bipolar neurones. The dendrite of a bipolar neurone receives sensory stimuli, which are converted to impulses and conducted down the dendrite and axon of the cell.
