3-D Electron Micrograph of Biological Specimen: 

3-D Electron Micrograph of Biological Specimen Object making its way from the center to the left-hand edge of the picture is a blood capillary in the 4.5-micrometer thick sample. The dark tree-like object is the Purkinje cell; the branches are called dendrites. Photo ©1999 Osaka University.
