Cover Legend

Fluorescence-microscopic view of a cluster of neuronal cells derived from human embryonic stem cells. Outgrowing processes are labeled by beta-tubulin III (green) and the aggregate of nuclei by propidium iodide (red). The length of some processes reached up to 5 mm in vitro. For further details, see article by Baharvand et al.,, pp. 371-377.
