Description

No description of motion is complete without describing the environment in which motion occurs. Though we can image and view the microscopic world through a multitude of techniques, there is none that can honestly express these microcosms of the universe as they actually exist.

To accurately represent the fundamental nature of oneself is extraordinarily difficult because its escapes understanding the same way motion cannot be described in the absence of an environment. This image of the CA1 brain region of our mouse was recorded from a two-Photon Calcium Imaging Microscope.
