"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.

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.

The retina contains five classes of neurons: photoreceptors (purple), horizontal cells (yellow), bipolar neurons (green), amacrine cells (pink and blue), and ganglion cells (pink and blue). In this cross section of an adult mouse retina, only a subset of bipolar cells, “the ON bipolar cells” are visible by their expression of GFP (green). The pink and blue speckled striations at the bottom of the image mark the fiber layer, which contains the ganglion cell axons that will form the optic…

These cells line the Choroid Plexus, a layer of tissue that lines the inside of the ventricles of the nervous system. The swollen tips of these cells secrete the cerebrospinal fluid which bathes the brain in glucose and proteins, and prevents it from collapsing under its own weight.

Purkinje neurons play an essential role in motor function. Here the Purkinje neurons reach their arbor-like dendrites into the molecular layer of the developing cerebellum of a mouse. The mostly green cells at the bottom left are cerebellar granule cells, which relay information from the nervous system to the Purkinje neurons.

False-color scanning electron micrograph of a blood clot. Red blood cells have been trapped by a web of thin yellow-white strands of fibrin. Fibrin is an insoluble protein and represents a mutation of a soluble protein called fibrinogen normally present in blood. Blood clots may occur on the surface of skin in case of injuries or inside blood vessels, where they are known as thrombi. In the later case they may lead to heart attacks. Magnification: 1830x

In a new MIT study, optogenetics show that memories really do reside in very specific brain cells…. “This is the rigorously designed 21st-century test of Canadian neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield’s early-1900s accidental observation suggesting that mind is based on matter.”…. “René Descartes didn’t believe the mind can be studied as a natural science. He was wrong. This experimental method is the ultimate way of demonstrating that mind, like memory recall, is based on changes in matter.”
