Wellcome Image Awards

This SEM image of a Purkinje cell by Michael Häusser, Sarah Rieubland, and Arnd Roth was one of this year’s winners:

So was this micro-computed tomography scan of the skull and front legs of a tuatara (a New Zealand reptile) by Sophie Regnault:

And this illustration of pollen grains being released from the anther of a flower by Maurizio De Angelis:
