The cover image is a three dimensional reconstruction of the site of transmitter release from a sympathetic nerve onto a rat iris blood vessel as viewed with an electron microsope. The model of this structure is reconstructed from a series of slices through the nerve photographed with a transmission electron microscope. The images were digitized and processed to recover the three dimensional structure using advanced visualization techniques developed at ANU. This work is a collaboration between Shaun Sandow (JCSMR), Caryl Hill (JCSMR) and Drew Whitehouse (ANUSF).
