Edinger-Westphal neurons in culture. Stained for Tubulin (green) and Synapsin (red). Of course, colocalization makes yellow. Imaged with a Zeiss Axioskop 2 FS Plus equipped with a Zeiss Axiocam HRm. 100x total magnification.

"Brains are gorgeous at the right magnification", says Mark Miller on his "neuro" set of photos in flickr. Self-described as an intracellular recording artist, Miller shows images of a mouse's neuronal network.    Covering different areas of the brain such as the cingulated cortex or motor cortex, the images are quite impressive, particularly since the neurons connecting in the brain resemble the large-scale structure of the universe.

This neuronal stem cell culture shows a rainbow of differentiation, with fluorescent tags that separate stem cells (orange/yellow) from their neuronal "offspring" (blue/green/purple).

Amazing to think that this insignificant looking bundle of strands is what makes us who we are, and controls everything we do. Neuroscience is fascinating stuff.

What do memories look like? USC scientists have developed a way to see where & how our memory is written. They engineered microscopic probes that light up synapses in a living neuron in real time by attaching fluorescent markers onto synaptic proteins — all without affecting the neuron’s ability to function. The fluorescent markers allow scientists to see live excitatory and inhibitory synapses for the first time and, importantly, how they change as new memories are formed.
