Human anatomy, including structure and development and practical considerations . alcells. The Purkinje cells, the most distinctive nerous elements of the cerebellum, occupy the deepest part of the molecular layer, where they are disposed in a singlerow along the outer boundarv of the subjacent granular layer. The cells are mostnumerous and more closely placed upon the summit of the folium and fewer andmore scattered along the fissures, in which situation they are also often of less typicalpyriform shape. They possess a large flask-like body, about .060 mm. in diameter, from the pointed and outwardly directed end of which usually one, sometimes more, robust dendritic process arises. The chief process, relatively thick and very short, soon divides into two branches, which at first diverge and run more or less horizontallyand then turn sharply outward to assume a course vertical to the surface and undergorepeated subdivision. The arrangement of the larger dendrites is very striking andrecalls the branching of the antlers of a deer. The smaller processes arise at varying. _ Central limb of white matter Transverse section of cerebellar folium, showing relations of cortex tounderlying white matter.
