neurons in the brain

Nerve cells

all living things are made of cells. the nerve cell which sends messages to the brain. this is the smallest organism that is alive

"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).

This image illustrates the pyramidal neurons, which make up 80 percent of the neurons in the neocortex.

"Astrocyte brain cells. Immunofluorescent light micrograph of brain cells from the cortex of a mammalian brain. The nucleus of each cell is stained blue and cytoplasm stained green. These have numerous branches of connective tissue which provide support and nutrition to the neurones (nerve cells). Astrocytes may also play a role in information storage."
