Have you ever wanted to see the blood-brain barrier in an organism?

Now that you have finished your finals, make time for some fun.  Check out Wired.com‘s article and online gallery of the winners of Nikon’s Small World Microscope Photography contest.   This photo won first place in the competition.  It was taken by Jennifer Peters and Michael Taylor from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  The subject is “The blood-brain barrier in a live zebrafish embryo.” Another image you might want to check out would be the third place entry submitted by Dylan Burnette from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland of the veiw of human bone cancer (osteosarcoma). Althought these particular pictures have a medical connection, all the photos are fascinating and a unique way to rediscover the world around us.
