Removal of the skin and the layer of tough tissue beneath it, the palmar fascia, reveals a complex arrangement of blood vessels and nerves in the hand and wrist

Retina. SEM of a section through a human retina, the light-sensitive tissue that lines the inside of the eye. Light entering the eye passes through several layers of cells before reaching the light receptors. From top to bottom are seen: cell bodies of optical ganglion cells (pale red), which form the optic nerve; cell bodies of bipolar neurons and cell bodies of the receptor cells (red); and the rod (white) and cone (yellow) receptors. Rod cells different

Brain tumour. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a glioma, a type of tumour that arises from glial cells of the central nervous system. The most common site for gliomas is the brain. They can be either low or high-grade, with the latter having the worse prognosis. Magnification: x8000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Credit: STEVE GSCHMEISSNER

Scanning electron microscope image of cholera bacteria

Campylobacter bacteria are the number-one cause of food-related gastrointestinal illness in the United States. ARS scientists are currently sequencing multiple Campylobacter genomes. This scanning electron microscope image shows the characteristic spiral, or corkscrew, shape of C. jejuni cells and related structures. Photo by De Wood; digital colorization by Chris Pooley.
