Axons get a kiss
Wow, just wow. A quick one today, I wanted to share this photograph of neurones firing into action after treatment with a chemical; this sheds a whole new light on the spectacular action of our nervous system and the firework display that occurs up close, each and every time one of our nerves fire into action. This is phenomenal, I think you'll agree!
