In an effort to identify how the elasticity of the arteries in the brain correlates with aging well, researchers at the Beckman Institute used optical methods developed in their lab to map out the pulse pressure of the entire brain’s cortex.

Mind maps: the beauty of brain cells – in pictures

The Spanish scientist Santiago Ramón y Cajal, the father of modern neuroscience, was one of the first people to unravel the mysteries of the structure of the brain – and he made stunning drawings to describe and explain his discoveries

Ramon Y. Cajal was a pioneer in neuroscience as well as a fantastic artist. Using the Golgi staining method he was able to isolate and categorized different neurons in brain tissue.

Neurons or Pollock? Scientists Create Technicolor 'Brainbow'    Colorful "Gray Matter"    These neurons sit in the cerebral cortex, often referred to as the gray matter for the area's color in non-living specimens. These cortical neurons are involved in higher-thought processes and perception of different senses.
