Static electricity experiments

Static electricity experiments, historical artwork. Turning the wheel at lower right creates a charge on the man on the trapeze, which he passes to the girl on the wooden (non-conducting) block. She is observing the effects on a pile of small flakes. This illustration is from Recueil de Traites sur l'Electricite, Traduits de l'Allemand & de l'Anglois, seconde partie, published in 1748


Salivary gland Featured 18 Feb 2003 Print

Salivary gland

Salivary gland. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a transverse freeze-fractured section through an acinus (large brown circle) in a salivary gland. The rest of the image comprises several other acini surrounding this acinus. Acini are the smallest unit of a gland. They comprise a circular cluster of cells that secrete fluid into a central duct (hole, centre) that leads to larger ducts. These acini are secreting granules (lumps, brown) of mucus, the natural lubricating fluid found in saliva. Each acini is circled by a layer of connective tissue (pink). Saliva is secreted into the mouth to aid digestion and the process of swallowing. Magnification: x1000 at 6x7cm size
