As Virginia Hughes noted in a recent piece for National Geographic’s Phenomena blog, the most common depiction of a synapse (that communicating junction between two neurons) is pretty simple:

Signal molecules leave one neuron from that bulby thing, float across a gap, and are picked up by receptors on the other neuron. In this way, information is transmitted from cell to cell … and thinking is possible.

But thanks to a bunch of German scientists - we now have a much more complete and accurate picture. They’ve created the first scientifically accurate 3D model of a synaptic bouton (that bulby bit) complete with every protein and cytoskeletal element.

This effort has been made possible only by a collaboration of specialists in electron microscopy, super-resolution light microscopy (STED), mass spectrometry, and quantitative biochemistry.

says the press release. The model reveals a whole world of neuroscience waiting to be explored. Exciting stuff!

You can access the full video of their 3D model here.

Edison: “I’ll rip your style and add it to my whole list of patents…while you were busy digging ditches and burning bridges I’m pumping out inventions and stacking riches so go back to your pigeons…I’ll crush you Tesla, I’m not putting it gently, I don’t alternate my flow, I diss you directly…”

Tesla: “History is getting rewritten and I have reddit, your best invention was a way to steal credit…you couldn’t handle my gifts with your greedy little mind, what’s inside mine was ahead of its own time, you did not steal from me, you stole me from mankind…and if the people knew you stopped me from making power free, they would curse the con Edison with every utility…”

The most epic of rap battles.

I’m going to assume this has happened to anyone who’s ever cuddled anyone and has a penis.
Source (find the exact comic yourself; at least I linked you to the webpage)

no, no, dont do this, please, if you are cuddling w/ me your boner is like a compliment and i welcome you to grind that shit into the back of my legs

same

same

if we are spooning and there isn’t a boner pressed into my butt I will assume you don’t actually like me and get really upset

Bones next to the butt are nice

Butt bones are the best bones.

where the women of tumblr make me feel better about having a boner when cuddling



Basically.

I’m laughing so hard
