Slide 12: Nerve bundles, cross and obliquely sectioned with epineurium and perineurium visible. The perineurium surrounds each nerve bundle (fascicle) and the epineurium forms the dense connective tissue that forms the external coat of nerves and holds the fasicles together. This image shows the typical wavy appearance of the fibers (there is a retraction/contraction of the nerve when it is cut) as well as the connective tissue ensheathment. H & E.
