dendrites merge - for those who speak this language: these are the apical tufts of 2 cortical layer V pyramidal cells filled with biocytin and stained with a Texas red / avidin-D conjugate, then counterstained with a green fluorescent nissl stain.

✯ Nerve cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of nerve cells, showing cell bodies (pink) and extensions called axons and dendrites (purple). Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body.✯

According to two neuroscience experts, the field focuses far too much on the anatomy of the nervous system, and not enough on behavior.

A human neocortical pyramidal neuron stained via Golgi technique. Notice the apical dendrite extending vertically above the soma and the numerous basal dendrites radiating laterally from the base of the cell body.

Neuroscience | Two Pyramidals | Pyramidal cells are a type of neuron found in the brain that integrate information received from their dendrites (branching at the bottom of the cell), process it, and transmit it to other cells through its axon (large branch emerging from the cell going upwards).

Neuroscience Meets Ancient Japanese Scrolls

Greg Dunn is a neuroscience PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania and an artist passionate about Japanese minimalist scrolls. While these interests may appear radically incongruous, Dunn's artwork suggests otherwise.
