Synapses + Neurons. This is what the inside of our brains look like when we are thinking.

This is what the inside of our brains look like when we are thinking. How Nerve Cells Communicate The brain makes sense of our experiences by focusing closely on the timing of the impulses that flow through billions of nerve cells

Resin cast of arteries in the brain. Your brain consumes about 20% of your body's energy so it needs a lot of blood flow to keep it supplied with nutrients. Even knowing that, the density of the neurons here amazes me--they look almost the size of the brain itself!

A cross section of a bundle of nerve fibers. Axons (orange) are wrapped in myelin (purple); an extension of the membrane of glial cells. Myelin has high lipid content, and acts to insulate the axons, causing them to transmit nerve impulses much faster.

Neurons Learning to Remember: Mechanism of Neural Information Storage Identified Research findings obtained over the past decades increasingly indicate that stored memories are coded as permanent.

These cells line the Choroid Plexus, a layer of tissue that lines the inside of the ventricles of the nervous system. The swollen tips of these cells secrete the cerebrospinal fluid which bathes the brain in glucose and proteins, and prevents it from collapsing under its own weight.
