Touring the microscopic worlds of the human body

Touring the microscopic worlds of the human body

Scientific illustrator Dee Breger specializes in creating images using a scanning electron microscope (SEM), which has an incredible level of magnification. In this recently posted TEDEducation video, Breger takes viewers on a tour of the hidden world inside the human body and offers close-up shots of a blood clot, the thyroid gland and neurons involved in memory. It’s worth taking a moment to watch. (The dental plaque image alone will motivate you to take better care of your teeth.)
