Brain babies
In this photomicrograph by Thomas Deerinck and Mark Ellisman at the National Center for Miscroscopy Imaging and Research, human spiny neurons and their tangled axons grow in a dish. The buds, which resemble kelp bulbs, are called presynaptic boutons. They form one half of the synapse or connection between two neurons.
