This year’s 7th place winner in the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition shows what such cells look like after becoming neurons. This image was taken by Jianqun Gao, a neurologist at the University of Sydney. Neuronal extensions glow in green and red, with nuclei featured in blue at 20x magnification.
