Endoplasmic Reticulum are membranes that move proteins & other substances through a cell

The Real Neuroscience of Creativity.  So yea, you know how the left brain is really realistic, analytical, practical, organized, and logical, and the right brain is so darn creative, passionate, sensual, tasteful, colorful, vivid, and poetic?  No.  What if this is totally wrong.  I'm sure this impacts on ADHD - not sure how

The REAL Neuroscience of Creativity

What is the relationship between creative genius and mental illness? Neuroscientist Nancy Andreasen answers these questions about the secrets of the creative brain.

Nerve bundle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured section through a bundle of myelinated nerve fibres. Myelin sheaths (yellow) can be seen surrounding the axons (blue). Perineurium (connective tissue, pink) surrounds the nerve bundle while endoneurium divides the individual fibres.

Interesting insight into color.

Ever wonder how we see colour ? Take a look at this info graphic which explains how our eyes and brain see colour and the various conditions of colour blindness.

In this awesome transmission micrograph you can see what a synapse actually looks like. It's the place where two neurons are kissing

Another false color electron micrograph of a synapse. The lower right teal circle containing small red circles is the presynaptic neuron; upper circle is the postsynaptic neuron.

The Cell: An Image Library. Confocal image of pastel neurons in the hippocampus of a "Brainbow" mouse brain, with each neuron expressing a distinct color. In Brainbow mice, neurons randomly choose combinations of red, yellow and cyan fluorescent proteins.

New tool can trace and spatially map ‘mosaic’ mutations in the brain

Male brains (top) show greater connectivity front-to-back, while female brains (bottom) are more connected across the hemispheres. This may explain some of the psychological differences between the genders.

Brain networks showing significantly increased intra-hemispheric connectivity in males (Upper) and inter-hemispheric connectivity in females (Lower). Intra-hemispheric connections are shown in blue, and inter- hemispheric connections are shown

Resin cast of arteries in the brain. Your brain consumes about 20% of your body's energy so it needs a lot of blood flow to keep it supplied with nutrients. Even knowing that, the density of the neurons here amazes me--they look almost the size of the brain itself!
