Blood clot. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a blood clot from the inner wall of the left ventricle of a human heart. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are trapped within a fibrin protein mesh (cream). The fibrin mesh is formed in response to chemicals secreted by platelets (pink), fragments of white blood cells. Clots are formed in response to cardiovascular disease or injuries to blood vessels. Connective tissue (orange) is also seen.

Above are artist Brett Kingery’s stunning vintage illustrations of plant cell anatomy. How many structures are familiar to you?
When mapped and color-coded, the brain is a beautiful thing. These mind blowing visuals are images of the human brain’s pathways, tracking the circuits in our heads and showing how we process information with bright, neon colors. The Human Connectome Project are the masterminds behind these amazing unearthly looking scientific studies.
This 'gastric rainbow', is a microscopic section through a mouse stomach. The black area at the top is where food is digested by enzymes and acids, and these are made by the green and magenta cells, respectively. The red cells that line the surface of the stomach secrete mucus to protect the stomach from digesting itself.
