Purkinje Cells (image) KU Leuven Share Print E-Mail Caption A cross-section of the folded cerebellar cortex or 'little brain' of a chicken embryo, with three layers of cells. The middle layer consists of Purkinje cells with their characteristic dendritic branches. This image shows healthy Purkinje cells, highlighted in bright colours. With a deactivated MCT8 transporter, the Purkinje cells would have much smaller dendritic branches.
