Somewhere over the Brainbow
This article caught my eye recently:
Colours light up brain structure
Neuronal circuits can now be seen in a multicolour ‘brainbow’.
It’s not often that research results look this good. An elegant new way to visualize individual brain cells not only provides a major boost to scientists trying to understand how the brain works, but has also won one of its developers a major prize in science photography.
I love it when science and art (specifically the visual arts) come together so beautifully in a way that everyone can appreciate.
