The Winners of the Wellcome Image Awards, which celebrate the best images in science have been announced.
Here are a selection of them:
A map of pathways inside a person’s brain. Different parts of the brain talk to each other using different pathways and these have been coloured in here. This is a view from behind. It shows the links between the left and right sides of brain in red, the links between front and back in green, and the links between the brain and the rest of the body in blue. This brain is about 16.5 cm wide.
A 3D picture inside the back of a human eye. Tunnels like these carry blood to the eye to help it work properly. Pictures like this are used by doctors to help them spot early signs of disease in the eye. These tiny tunnels are about 100 micrometres (0.1 mm) tall.
Close-up of scales on a Madagascan sunset moth. This large moth sparkles with colour in the light and is often mistaken for a butterfly. But the colour is an illusion. It comes from light bouncing off these curved scales, and the wings themselves have very little colour. This detail here is 750 micrometres (0.75 mm) wide.
