    Chicken embryo vascular system Vincent Pasque / University of Cambridge This fluorescence micrograph shows the vascular system of a developing chicken embryo (Gallus gallus), two days after fertilisation. Injecting fluorescent dextran revealed the entire vasculature used by the embryo to feed itself from the rich underlying yolk inside the egg. At this stage of development, the embryo and its surrounding vasculature are a little smaller than a 5p coin.

    Human embryo at day four | Image Editor Scanning electron micrograph of a human embryo at day 4. The protein coat surrounding the egg (zona pellucida, gold) has been slit to expose the embryonic cells inside (red). These cells go on to form the embryo and can be harvested and cultured to give rise to embryonic stem (ES) cells. Microvilli are visible on the surface of the embryonic cells (blastomeres) and numerous sperm (blue) are still visible on the outside of the zona pellucida.

    Nerve cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of nerve cells, showing cell bodies (pink) and extensions called axons and dendrites (purple). Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body.
