False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of human nerve cells growing on the surface of an integrated circuit (silicon chip). The picture was taken in the course of research into biohybrid circuits, & demonstrates how much smaller organic circuits are than man-made ones. Biohybrid circuits are possible electronic devices of the future that would combine organic & inorganic components. Magnification: x145 at 35mm size, x290 at 6x7cm size.
