Mouse Brain or Impressionist Painting?
Date:11/13/2007

technique allows the three colors to combine in different cells to produce a wide variety of resulting hues. By using color to trace each neuron's individual path and connections, scientists hope eventually to build detailed maps that will help them understand how the brain works. Livet's picture is a montage of images showing large caliber axons of the auditory pathway and their characteristic calyx-like ends.

"This winning image reflects the awesome intricacy and beauty of the natural world and it shows how much science and fine art can echo one another," said Stephen Tang, PhD, Group Vice President and General Manager, Life Science, for Olympus America. "But the most exciting thing about these images is the vital stories they tell about our quest to cure disease and enhance life. These extraordinary images are visual records of our current understanding of neurological disorders, cancer, plant science, developmental biology and much more."

Other significant images recognized in this year's competition include several of the inner ear that help shed light on the process of hearing; numerous striking photos of cells and the brain; vibrant botanical images; rat and hen tongues; and four other Brainbow images captured by Dr. Livet and his Harvard colleague Tamily Weissman.

Twenty of the 2007 winning and Honorable Mention images will be displayed in Washington DC and at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Farms campus in Virginia this winter, and then will begin a national tour that will take them to such destinations as New York City; San Diego; the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA; and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY. Other displays of BioScapes images will simultaneously be touring in Los Angeles; Baltimore MD; Buffalo NY; two destinations in Canada; and Allentown PA throughout 2008.

Olympus selects outstanding authorities in microscope imaging as judges for the competition, which is open to users of any brand of ligh
