Purkinje Neurons (2008)- Ink on xuan with digital manipulation by Greg Dunn

Michael Hendricks and Suresh Jesuthasan (2008). This photomicrograph reveals the arrangement of proteins that form the elaborate molecular scaffolding of axons

The photomicrograph above shows a rat cerebellum, which is involved in motor control.

This is a false color image of a transmission electron micrograph of a synapse. The bright pink areas color neurons. The presynaptic neuron sends signals to the postsynaptic neuron by releasing neurotransmitters (blue) that have been packaged into vesicles. Mitochondria are colored yellow.
