At a synapse an electrical signal is transmitted from one cell to the next in only one direction. The nerve cells are green, with the pre-synaptic cell at lower right and the post-synaptic cell at upper left. Mitochondria are purple. Neurotransmitter chemicals from vesicles are red. Magnification 50,000x. Image by Science photo library.

The BioDigital Human is a virtual body developed by NYU School of Medicine and the company BioDigital Systems. It's used to teach students about anatomy and health conditions in an interactive, web-based format.

This unique series is dedicated to presenting the human figure in a way that allows a deeper understanding of shape, form, and gesture. For professional and student artists alike, the Virtual Pose ® series is the next best thing to working with a live model.
