Coloured SEM of nerve fibres: Nerve fibres. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of nerve fibres (brown). A group of nerves such as this is known as a fasciculus. The fibres are held together by connective tissue in the form of strands of collagen (red). Each nerve fibre consists of a nerve cell axon; the output process of a nerve cell; covered in an insulating fatty layer known as a myelin sheath. Myelin isolates the nerve from its surroundings; increasing the speed of nerve transmissions. Nerves collect; interpret and relay information. The fibres are used to pass the information on to other parts of the body; such as the muscles and organs like the brain.
