The image shows a cross section of the ischiadic nerve from a cat.

The preparation is particularly well suited to identify large and small myelinated axons, the perineurium and capillaries inside the fascicles.

The adipose / fat cells are colored light brown in this section and are seen next to the perineurium. The perineurium is coloured blue.

Try to identify;

  • adipose cells (fat cells)
  • fascicles
