By the way, the first one is a mouse cochlea and it wins the fractal of the day award in my book. The second one is a mouse hippocampus (cranial memory lobe and general chemical signal processor) and the last one is a technicolor mouse cerebellum (muscle memory and primitive function brain center). I got these images from the web, but the cool thing is, in cell-bio we actually get to do this type of imaging. Enjoy the show Chiao!
