Neurons growing in a cell culture
These time lapse animations use phase contrast microscopy to show neural stem cells in a nutrient medium for 4 hours. They reveal the dynamic growth and recycling of dendrites and synapses as neurons establish relationships with each other. The social behavior of these cells creates the incredible properties of the mind and brain.

THIS MADE ME START HYPERVENTILATING which is really ironic
that was fucking terrifying
your tension has been exterminated
THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER
I was soaking up some sun in central park when I saw this couple struggling to take a picture together on their cell phone. They asked a passing girl to take it for them, but unsatisfied with it, they continued to try on their own.
I scooted over to them and asked if they’d like some help. Happily, they passed me their old flip phone, explained how to take the picture, and posed. They explained to me that they were trying to take a good photo for their wedding invitations. I was taken aback.
Instantly I gave them back their phone and walked over to get my camera. I told them I’d give them a little photo-shoot with my camera and email them the pictures that night.
The looks on their faces are the reason I love photography so much. The adorable couple thanked me countless times and gave me hugs before saying goodbye. That night when I emailed them the photos, they wrote me the nicest email response and invited me to their wedding.
My happiness in life always comes from moments like this.
i deal with my feelings in a healthy way
and by healthy way i mean shoving them aside and spending hours on the internet doing basically nothing to keep my thoughts far far far away from them it’s foolproof yes
