Description: Inspired by recent development in microscopy resolution and real research data, dendritic spines are lighting up the path to baby Jesus, sheltered under a neuron tree. The stars are also background staining from the brain, magnified more than a thousand times. Seemingly countless and insignificant in the sky, each dot in fact harbors an entire world. Our ability to investigate the brain in such detail enables us to better understand how individual physiological changes trough life are in fact linked with changes in our brains.
