BradBlogspeed's Vid-Picks

This is a beautiful image of human brain cells, which can now be grown from adult skin cells.

Under the Microscope is a collection of videos that show glimpses of the natural and man-made world in stunning close-up. They are released every Monday and Thursday and you can see them here: vimeo.com/channels/micro

Yichen Shi:
"Brain neural stem cells derived from human skin cells: these stem cells express typical marker genes of brain neocortical stem cells, such as Pax6 (Red fluorescent labeled), and form a rosette structure resembling the transection of the neural tube."

The entire image is about 250 μm across (a really thick bit of human hair).

That's right, here are videos plucked directly from the stream of semi-consciousness!

BradBlogspeed.com is a skeptical, science/art blog that strives to bring you daily doses of beautiful. (well, mostly daily anyway) From animation to astronomy, short films to infographics, there's beauty to be found throughout both the natural and man-made worlds.

Whether you're struck by nothing more than a pretty picture, or the exhilaration of knowledge, both science and art can teach us about nature, and ourselves.

This channel contains all the videos shared on the blog since way back. (well, those that live on Vimeo anyway)

Enjoy!
