Caption: Using spatial light interference microscopy (SLIM) techniques developed by Gabriel Popescu, director of the Quantitative Light Imaging Laboratory at the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois, researchers were able to show for the first time how human embryonic stem cell derived neurons within a network grow, organize spatially, and dynamically transport materials to one another.
