Cluster of neurons differentiated from embryonic stem cells | 2008 Photomicrography Competition | Nikon Small World

Spherical cluster (neurosphere) of neurons with radiating beams of blinding neon light, differentiated from embryonic stem cells (for the record, those are just cellular processes branching out from individual cells) confocal credit: Sharona Even-Ram

SEM of Pthirus pubis (pubic lice) Looks like an alien in one of those invasion movies. LOL

Body lice look very similar to head lice, but they live primarily in clothing & only visit the host for blood meals (what a mooch). Pubic lice look like tiny white crabs in pubic and coarse body hair.

It's pretty awesome to see an actual neuron and be able to identify it's components A neuron from the hippocampus at magnification. There are approximately 100 billion neurons in the human brain. Image by Dr. Carlo Sala, CNR Institute of Neuroscience

The retina contains five classes of neurons: photoreceptors (purple), horizontal cells (yellow), bipolar neurons (green), amacrine cells (pink and blue), and ganglion cells (pink and blue). In this cross section of an adult mouse retina, only a subset of bipolar cells, “the ON bipolar cells” are visible by their expression of GFP (green). The pink and blue speckled striations at the bottom of the image mark the fiber layer, which contains the ganglion cell axons that will form the optic…

Resin cast of arteries in the brain. Your brain consumes about 20% of your body's energy so it needs a lot of blood flow to keep it supplied with nutrients. Even knowing that, the density of the neurons here amazes me--they look almost the size of the brain itself!

Resin cast of arteries in the brain. An especially fascinating cast showing the need of oxygen in our headbang tool.
