Embryon de souris placé dans un portoir pour ensuite l'observer au microscope à feuille de lumière

Mouse embryo placed in a carrier to then observe it under a selective plane illumination microscope. This technique enables rapid 3D imaging of specimens (here the organisation of the brain and the visual pathways). The goal is to see how the axons are positioned in this embryo.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
