The beautiful image on the right is a collection of neural stem cells stained with fluorescent die, taken from the finalists of the Wellcome Image Awards.
A wonderful image of the bacteria that cause a type of meningitis is another brain-related image in the finalists’ gallery.
There are plenty more images of course, but don’t miss the audio interviews that accompany each image where the scientist discusses their work.
All of the pictures are quite stunning so well worth a look.
