Nerve Tissue

Al-Maarefa College


Nerve Tissue

  • Cells have very high ability to

    • Respond to stimuli

    • Transmit impulses


Nerve Tissue


Nerve Tissue

  • NEURON is the main nerve cell)


Nerve Tissue

  • NEURON is the main nerve cell

    • Cell Body(3)

    • Dendrites (5)

    • Axon(1)


Motor Neurone


Motor Neurone

  • Cell body

  • Dendrites

  • Axon

    • Covered by Myelin sheath


Neuron

  • Multipolar

Nerve and Reflex Arc


Nerve Fiber (Axon)

  • Nerve fibers are long nerve cell processes (axon cylinder, axon) with a surrounding membrane

  • Schwann cells (neurolemmocytes, peripheral glial cells) enfold the axon and form an insulating cover known as Schwann’s sheath (neurolemma).

Nerve Fiber (Axon)

  • Myelinated nerve fiber, i.e., the axon is covered by a myelin sheath, which is rich in lipids.

  • Every 0.8 to 1.0 mm, a node of Ranvier subdivides the myelin sheath into segments or internodes.

Glial Cells

  • Glial cells (Neuroglia) or (Glia)

  • (Greek "glue”

  • Non-neuronal cells that:

    1- maintain homeostasis,

    2-form myelin,

    3- provide support and protection for the brain's neurons

  • They occupy the entire space between neurons and separate nerve cells from blood vessels


Glial Cells - Functions

  • Surround neurons and hold them in place

  • Supply nutrients and oxygen to neurons

  • Insulate one neuron from another

  • Destroy pathogens and remove dead neurons


Glial Cells - Types

  • Astrocytes (macroglia)

  • Oligodendrocytes

  • Microgliocytes


Astrocytes

  • Most abundant

  • Deal with homeostasis – relate to vessels

  • are characteristic star-shaped glialcellsin the brain and spinal cord. They perform many functions, including :

  • 1- biochemical support of endothelial cells that form the blood–brain barrier,

  • 2- provision of nutrients to the nervous tissue,

  • 3-maintenance of extracellular ion balance,

  • 4- and a role in the repair and scarring process of the brain and spinal cord following traumatic injuries

Microglia


Microglia:Microglia are the main resident immunological cells the CNS

  • Oligodendrocytes:

    • Closely related to neurons

    • Provide myelin protection for CNS neurons
