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 - possible chips of the future that combine biological & electronic components - & demonstrates how much smaller organic circuits are than man-made ones. Magnification: x57 for 35mm size.
