Alcohol under the microscope - BevShot images are made by first crystallising the drink of choice on a lab slide. Using a standard light microscope with a camera attached, the light source is polarised and passed through the crystal. This creates the magnificent colors. Each colour is a result of the ingredients contained in each beverage.
Axones nerviosos - A cross section of a bundle of nerve fibers. Axons (orange) are wrapped in myelin (purple); an extension of the membrane of glial cells. Myelin has high lipid content, and acts to insulate the axons, causing them to transmit nerve impulses much faster.
Inner ear hair cells, Scanning Electron Microscope. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of sensory hair cells from the inner ear. These cells are surrounded by a fluid called endolymph. As sound enters the ear it causes waves to form in the endolymph, which in turn cause the hairs to move. The movement is converted to an electrical signal that is passed on to the brain. Each crescent-shaped arrangement of hairs lies atop a single cell.
