Photo of C. elegans under yellow florescence.

This is an image of the same C. elegans worm taken under yellow florescence. Thanks to the green florescent protein markers, the entire nervous system is visible. Each yellow dot is the nucleus of a neuron. An accumulation of neurons is seen at the head of the worm (equivalent to the human brain) while other neurons are scattered throughout the body of the worm (equivalent to the human spinal cord).
