DSCN9945

neurons are most striking when they seem astronomical.

 

for grins, and to test a new technique, dye-coated tungsten particles were shot into a plate of primary neural culture with a gene-gun. the more diffuse, amorphous cells are glia (astrocytes), the smaller more varicose ones are neurons (probably only visable if the picture is viewed at a large size).
