So peaceful. I adore difficult structures. Makes my brain numb.
There is nothing more beautiful than nice immunohistochemistry on the rat brain, especially on #animalsday ! Does animalday exist all over the world by the way? Or is it typical dutch? Anyway! There is so much to thank the rats for. I was able to participate in a study and look at the play behaviour of rats. Yes, they do play! Similar to human kids wrestling. It was part of research to how and why this behaviour arises from the brain. As you probably do not know is that it is obligatory to euthanise the animals after the experiment is finished and ofcourse we look at the brain afterward, as the origin of all these behaviour lie in the brain! With all different kinds of techniques we can try to for example find out what brain part is involved in creating play behaviour. This immunohistochemistry technique is only one of many. But a visually very beautiful one 🧠. (Note: EVERYTHING is done to minimise animal experiments, but we do need treatments/medicines/behavioural therapies etc etc.) . #geek #nerd #science #neuroscience #brain #brainslices #immunohistochemistry #rats #animal #cortex #corpuscallosum #neurobiology #behaviour
It’s me, with younger me in the back 🌝
Nice black and white composition with some cool looking animals in it. They currently participate in the study I do with some classmates about nematode cycles and influences of weather and the pasture occupancy. Sounds cool right? Although it is not really what I hoped the project would be, it’s fun to walk around in the pastures seeing these creatures ruminate and staring at me like I’m an 👽. . . . #sheep #nematode #weather #blackandwhite #texelaar #tree #shade #sun
I have two little friends living together with me and my lovely boyfriend. One never leaves my side or lap by day and this tiny monster is always with me by night. So cool how they have such different characters, but I love them equally as much ♥️ . . . #cat #norwegianforestcat #eyes #selfie #blackandwhite #friends #bff
