Electron Microscope Images of Vertebrate Eyes.

Interesting structural and physiological information, and microscopic images of vertebrate eyes in this paper.

Nerve Cells Live Double Lives:

I was searching for images of sensory cells and found this article. The complexity and sophistication of living organisms is incredible! This image of a mouses retina looks looks like a galaxy, nubula or exploding star. I am continually struck by the endless repetition of form, shape and pattern on both a cellular and cosmic scale, the human mind, human inginuity and the development of technology to record such things.

Cleaver little ganglia!
