A pseudo-colored TEM micrograph of a quick-freeze deep-etch replica of bovine cerebellum taken with Hitachi H-7650 TEM at X7, 000, accelerating voltage 120 kV.
A thinking has the networks of intracellular structures such as axons and synapses develop well and the active electric potentials generate, in which weak brilliant flash might expand irreplaceable something like brilliant treasures.
