The Intersection of Science and Art

Some time ago, I posted pictures of photo prints from Allposters.com that I was drooling over. Well, Santa Claus (in the form of my lovely mother) agreed to buy four of them for me for Christmas. I purchased them yesterday during the Web site's Cyber Monday 30% off sale. Here is what I chose:

Neurons: a human brain cognition synapse.

Neuromuscular synapse: The junction
between a nerve fiber and a muscle.

Red blood cells (erythrocytes) in a vein
showing their biconcave shape.

Neuron showing the axons and dendrites.

Hooray for science!


  1. Pretty! I really like the neurons!

  2. Aren't they gorgeous?! I just couldn't resist ... they'll make good conversation pieces, at least until the people I'm talking to get tired of hearing me go on about science! ;)
