The dawn of neurodevelopment – the migratory journey of neural precursors (Eureka Prizes)

2013 New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography Highly Commended

The dawn of neurodevelopment – the migratory journey of neural precursors, Dr Michael Lovelace Professor Tailoi Chan-Ling, University of Sydney
Like a spectacular dawn, this image of migrating nervous system cells illustrates the complexity of morphologies and markers expressed on immature cells using an adherent neurosphere model. Neurospheres are spherical balls of cells that are used to model the processes involved in neurodevelopment.
