The firing of neurons in the human brain – using a substance that makes the nerve fluoresce scientists are able to take pictures of the brain in action

Living neurons firing The micrograph shows living neuronal cells. In a gene-modified procedure different components of the cells are coloured by fluorescent proteins, so that two different structure components, tubulin and actin, obtain different colours.

Fimbrae of a fallopian tube under scanning electron microscope... Georgia O'Keefe was right.

Fimbriae of a Fallopian Tube - Photographed by Brandon Broll, thus images is just one of many amazing microscopic photos in his book, Microcosmos, in which random things are magnified by between 22 times and 22 million times.

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.
