MICROSCOPIC HAIRS IN INNER EAR:  Inner ear help divers (like the one in today's pic) know their up down orientation in water.  Sounds under water are magnified. When we hear sounds (whether under water or above) microscopic hairs in our inner ears vibrate.

Human Retina

section through human retina - (top to bottom) optical ganglion cells (pale red), which form the optic nerve; bipolar neurons and receptor cells (red); and the rod (white) and cone (yellow) receptors.

✯ Nerve cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of nerve cells, showing cell bodies (pink) and extensions called axons and dendrites (purple). Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body.✯

Nerve bundle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured section through a bundle of myelinated nerve fibres. Myelin sheaths (yellow) can be seen surrounding the axons (blue). Perineurium (connective tissue, pink) surrounds the nerve bundle while endoneurium divides the individual fibres.

Most diatoms are unicellular, although they can exist as colonies in the shape of filaments or ribbons, fans, zigzags, or stellate colonies.

I love how you can see the cells embedded in/passing through the vein wall. Ruptured venule under scanning electron microscope.

Red blood cells exposed inside a torn venule. A venule is a very small blood vessel in the microcirculation that allows deoxygenated blood to return from the capillary beds to veins.
