Description

As a researcher you put your heart and soul into your work and sometimes your work reflects that. This is a 2 week old human neuron derived from stem cells. Neurons normally form connections with other neurons in culture, but this one is special in that it has begun to form connections with itself.

Live neuronal culture transfected with a fluorescent marker allows visualization of morphology using fluorescent microscopy.
