Cover image Purkinje nerve cells. Light micrograph of three purkinje nerve cells (across bottom) from the cerebellum of the brain. The cells comprise a flask-shaped cell body from which numerous processes (dendrites) branch. It is through these dendrites that the cells receive impulses from other cells. Purkinje cells form the junction between the granular and molecular layers of the grey matter of the cerebellum. The cerebellum controls balance, posture and muscle coordination.
