I wanted to show you my mitosis cookies! 
My friends Zoe and Nina made them with me (Mary) for our science teacher this weekend. They were inspired by the mitosis doughnuts.

Thanks for the submission, Mary. The cookies look very delicious. :)

Obligatory mitosis reblog.

This is a hippocampal neuron (read about hippocampus here) infected with GFP and DsRed ( the green+red combination is why it looks kind of orangey).  You can really see all the different branches the dendrites have made to receive input from other neurons.  Besides which, it looks absolutely stunning!

Things keeping your brain safe
The meninges are protective coverings of the brain specifically (they are the three leftmost stripes), but you also have the layers of your skull and outer skin shown here.  The meninges consist of three layers: the dura mater, arachnoid, and pia mater (from outermost to innermost, or on this image from right to left).
The dura mater means “tough mother” and as you can see, it’s the tough, leathery outer layer on the brain.  It looks kind of silvery in person.  The arachnoid looks spidery as the name would suggest due to the large number of blood vessels running through it.  The innermost layer is the pia mater or “little mother” and is very thin and delicate.
Meningitis, which you’ve probably heard of before, is the swelling of these membranes.  It puts too much pressure on the brain when these swell up, because the skull is inflexible.  This is why a major symptom of meningitis is headache (though clearly not the only thing headaches indicate).  Meningitis can be very serious and lead to death or brain damage, which is why there is a vaccine most people receive sometime in their teenage years to prevent some of the known causes of meningitis.

Gulf whales likely to be pushed over the edge of extinction

afghanibanani:

A 2009 stock assessment report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) estimated that the potential biological removal, or PBR, level for the Gulf of Mexico sperm whale population is three.

That means the whales’ long-term survival is at risk if, in addition to natural deaths, three sperm whales a year are killed or removed by human causes.

The loss of a handful of whales each year can impact a population of hundreds, because sperm whales—especially females—require a very long time to reach sexual maturity. Females then give birth to just three or four calves during their entire lifetimes.

“They’re like humans. Most of the human population is not going to have six kids at once and do that every year,” Godard-Codding said.

“As soon as we get to the level of three deaths caused by human interaction—and this would include the oil spill—that would jeopardize that particular sperm whale population.”
