Large, multipolar neurons with pyramid-shaped cells bodies
A membrane (spiderweb-like) directly beneath dura mater
Small furrows in a convoluted cortex
Sensory(afferent) unipolar neurons with their cell bodies grouped together just outside the spinal cord
Innermost meninx, delicate and adheres to surface of CNS
Carry motor signals from the CNS to skeletal muscles
Composed largely of myelinayed axons
Bundles of axons in CNS
Glial cells with extensions that wrap around the azons of some neurons of the CNS
Those autonomic motor nerves that project fomr the brain and sacral region of the spinal cord
Those autonomic motor nerves that project from the CNS in the lumbar and thoracic regions of the spinal cord

The outer meninx, a tough membrane
Everything but the brain and spinal cord
