Summary

Fifteen minutes in the strange and fascinating world of our nerve cells. Thanks to time lapse microcinematography, the complex phenomena occuring in the brain are visualized. We can see the birth of nerve cells, we can see them growing, working, dying….

These images brings to the fore two principal actors : the glial cells, building the structure and cleaning the brain, and the neurons, responsible of intercellular communication.

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.
