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.
City lights and neurons show striking similarities to in these side-by-side comparisons by Infinity Imagined. The city light photos were taken aboard the International Space Station, while the neuron images were created with fluorescence microscopy.
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.
