Cuve dans laquelle sera placé un embryon de souris pour l'observer au microscope

Vessel in which the sample, a mouse embryo, will be placed to observe it under a selective plane illumination microscope. In green, the light-sheet generated by a laser. This technique enables rapid 3D imaging of specimens (here the organisation of the brain and the visual pathways). The goal is to understand the mechanisms that control the development and repair of the brain.

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.
