Neuron Astrocyte Co-culture shadow box

For a very long time neurons and glia have been studied in isolation.  Only in the recent years have the study fields begun to merge and realize the mutual interdependence of these brain cells.  This piece symbolizes that symbiotic relationship, showing how astrocytes and neurons can be cultured together to bring forth even greater beauty of these amazing cells.

You can buy this shadow box at my Etsy store NeuroBead.
