I like cute animals, they make me gitty. I like cookies, so I can pretend that they're all the negative-ness in life and eat it all up LIKE A BOSS! I love philosophy, so if you get annoyed with my nonsense talk, I do apologize. I like to blog about fragments of my mind & daily life. Warning there will be random rants and bitching. Ain't nobody told me life was easy.
These time lapse animations use phase contrast microscopy to show neural stem cells in a nutrient medium for 4 hours. They reveal the dynamic growth and recycling of dendrites and synapses as neurons establish relationships with each other. The social behavior of these cells creates the incredible properties of the mind and brain.
