Painful Elegance

Bing Ye, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Cell and Developmental Biology and Research Assistant Professor, Life Sciences Institute

This image illustrates the dendritic processes of two pain-sensing neurons (red) in a fruit fly larva. The branches delicately avoid each other, forming a complete but non-overlapping coverage of the larval body surface. The axons of motor neurons which control muscle contraction are shown in blue.
