A Look Inside the Head
The head of an embryonic mouse at about 12.5 days postfertilization was fluorescently labeled to visualize neural precursor tissue, chemically treated to make it optically transparent, and scanned using SPIM to generate a 3D virtual reconstruction. A projection along the dorsal-ventral axis of this virtual embryo is shown, in which color (red-green-blue) indicates increasing depth in the sample. The native pigmentation of the eyes, imaged using optical projection tomography (OPT), is indicated in white. Sample courtesy of Glenda Comai, Institute Pasteur, Paris.

 Her garments reflect the Spanish tradition of dressing religious statues in expensive silks. Aware of the association of Europe with power and status, the Inca noblewomen of Cuzco often incorporated designs (notably the interlacing lattice motif) from European fabrics into their own garments.
