Fifteen minutes in the strange and fascinating world of our nerve cells. Thanks to time lapse microcinematography, the complex phenomena occuring in the brain are visualized. We can see the birth of nerve cells, we can see them growing, working, dying….
These images brings to the fore two principal actors : the glial cells, building the structure and cleaning the brain, and the neurons, responsible of intercellular communication.
