Cerebellum tissue, light micrograph

Cerebellum tissue. Confocal light micrograph of a section through the cerebellum of the brain. Purkinje cells, a type of neuron (nerve cell), are red. Radial glial cells, a type of support cell, are yellow, and cell nuclei are purple. Purkinje cells consist of a flask-shaped cell body with many branching processes (dendrites) that receive impulses from other cells. Purkinje cells form the junction between the granular and molecular layers of the grey matter of the cerebellum. The radial glial cells provide structural support, and nutrients and oxygen for the Purkinje cells. The cerebellum controls balance, posture and muscle coordination

Dry river beds, satellite image

Dry river beds, satellite image. North is at top. The bright blue areas are meandering wadis (dry river beds) that have formed in this desert area due to flooding. Desert areas can go for years without rain, and then be flooded by large storms. The floodwaters briefly carve patterns in the landscape and then evaporate or sink into the soil. The bright blue areas have higher moisture content than the surrounding areas. This area is in eastern Jordan, near the Syrian border. The area shown in this image is around 60 kilometres wide. The image data includes infrared wavelengths, and was obtained on 17 May 2001, using the ASTER sensor on the Terra satellite

Electron flow

Electron flow. Computer model representing the flow of electrons through a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG). The "gas" is composed of many free electrons, which can move around in only one plane. The 2DEG possesses an electric potential. Irregularities in this potential produce a "bumpy" surface. The model shows the paths taken by three groups of electrons released into the gas from the bottom right corner. The electrons were deflected by the bumps in the gas, producing a branching pattern, with the greatest density of electrons represented by the darkest areas. The fish was added later.
