Neurons of the cochlear spiral ganglion transmit auditory input to the brainstem for further processing. Here, substructures of the neuronal cytoskeleton were labelled to visualize individual nerve fibers and cell bodies. Source: Cristian Setz, Christian Vogl, Tobias Moser, IAN, UMG, 2018.

Exhibition „Sinneswelten“ (World of Senses)

The exhibition “Sinneswelten” provides special insights into the wonderful world of senses at the cellular level of sensory cells and neurons from an artistic perspective. The displayed images are results of the daily work of the scientists at the Collaborative Research Center 889 (CRC889). They have been acquired with different microscopic techniques and show the beauty inside the sensory systems.
The exhibition was realized by the CRC 889 in collaboration with the Cluster of Excellence “Multiscale Bioimaging: From Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable Cells” (MBExC).
