ANSWERS AND EXPLANATIONS




A) Pyramidal cell

This answer is incorrect.


This image shows an H&E stain of neonate cerebellum. The unnecessarily large red arrow is pointing to a Purkinje cell.

Pyramidal cells are found in cerebral cortex and in hippocampus, not in cerebellum.

B) Granule cell

This answer is incorrect.


This image shows an H&E stain of neonate cerebellum. The unnecessarily large red arrow is pointing to a Purkinje cell.

Granule cells are the small blue cells deep to the Purkinje cell layer, at the other end of that big red arrow.
