Polarised Light Microscopy Set of Dopamine

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that affects various centres of the brain. A region called the limbic system located in the mid-brain contains the densest concentration of dopamine receptors. the brain is flooded with dopamine when ingests when one ingests MDMA or ecstasy, triggering emotional responses and euphoric experiences. The highest density of dopamine receptors is found in the limbic system, the central region of the brain beneath the cerebrum and on both sides of the thalamus. The limbic system is important for a host of activities including emotion, behaviour, motivation, memory and smell.

Polarised light microscopes can be used to measure various physical properties of materials such as retardation, absorption colour, optical path boundaries aswell as the ability to distinguish between isotropic and anisotropic materials. One can also produce some dazzling displays of interference patterns in various kinds of media, as seen in the best of my dopamine photomicrography below. The components necessary for polarized light microscopy include a polarizer (positioned between the condenser and the light source) and an analyzer (positioned between the objective and the detector).

The growth of the film is sensitive to numerous environmental factors such as the temperature and the rate of cooling, impurities, etc. Prints are available to purchase and will be signed and sold as limited editions. For further information, please feel free to contact me.
