Part 1: It’s in your local pond, it loves a summer swim, and it has come to eat your BRAINZZZZZ…….!!! . #NaegleriaFowleri  is a seemingly harmless, free-ranging #amoeba that lives in water and just wants a bit of warmth and its favorite food, bacteria, to enjoy. Though occasionally, Naegleria can also be found haunting our media outlets. And our #brains . It happens during #summertime . While swimming in a lake or pond, a VERY unlucky person has managed to infect themselves with these creatures. And an #infection with Naegleria Fowler is no laughing matter. These animals will crawl inside a human’s skull and devour the delicious, gooey, grey matter inside… Killing 99% of all infected victims in a time span of just under two weeks. . Now, the amoeba doesn’t do this out of spite. It just wants a bit of food! Exploration of a strange, new world is just a lot more enjoyable when you don’t have to do it on an empty stomach. . After it gets inhaled the teeny-tiny creature twists its little #flagella into a little propeller. Then it moves up through the nose towards the olfactory nerve. This #nerve is responsible for signaling smells and odors towards the brain. The amoeba reaches this nerve. What scrumptiousness! A tiny bite won’t hurt, Naegleria thinks, as it munches its way towards the #skull . . The olfactory nerve is the back-door entry to the #brain . The brain fends of infectious agents or toxic molecules through the #BloodBrainBarrier . But to convey the sensation of smell to the brain, the olfactory nerve must get past that barrier. To do this, it passes the #CribiformPlate (#medstudents - know where this is?). This is the part of the skull separating nose from brain. The cribiform plate has little holes, which allow the olfactory nerve to pass through. And so, as Naegleria keeps munching, it follows the trail of olfactory nerve tissue crumbs straight through the plate – and into the skull, to feed on the brain. . Drawing displays: The developmental stages of Naegleria Fowleri – cyst (survival), flagellate (moving), trophozoite (FEEDING). . . . . . . . . #biology #studygram #summerfun #lakemonster #tinylakemonster #science #research #microbiology

Parts of a recent custom order, salmonella and E.coli dish towels. Patterns available in August. For these towels, I had to laugh, I finished these only to realize I didn’t have my equipment for blocking or ironing them due to the move. I made do with borrowed equipment. #scienceembroidery #science #ironic #irony #bacteria #salmonella #ecoli #escherichiacoli #flagella #flagellum #dna #dishtowel #kitchentowel #handmade #handembroidery #original #maker #mamamaker #makerlife #oregon #pnw #shopsmall #etsy #nerd #nerdygirl
Cool little clams on the shore during a low-tide sunrise walk with @michaelaaronconnor. Aren’t they cool?? Scroll to the last one for a video of them waving around underwater. 😯 It’s upside down, sorry about that. 😉 #wrongorientation #inversionjunkie #upsidedownlife #tubeytuesday #tubetuesday #littleclams #shellfish #clams #flagella #sealife #avalonnj #downtheshore #coolcreatures #lowtide #tidaltuesday #lowtidetuesday #seenonmywalk #beachwalkfinds #beachwalk #tallarinas #coquinas
Bacteria come in many different shapes and sizes, but three basic shapes are spherical, rod and spiral. These are H. pylori and swim using flagella, propeller like appendages. After they enter your body, they settle comfortably in your Digestive Track. Over time they can cause ulcers in the lining of your stomach. Common ways this bacteria spreads is from are water and food, along with poor sewage systems. #sceinctificanimation #MOAanimation #biotech #heathcareagency #scientificillustration #singlecellanimation
happiest of birthdays to my favorite person everrrrr. thanks for sticking with me since 1st grade (go wildcats) & always being there for me to send you a cringey post. love you more than you know. #onestrangegirl #peeaholic #sikes #feezys #wannahearajokeaboutacat #justkitten #volleyballstar #youlearnsomethingneweveryday

Some #Bacteria belonging to #Spirochetes or #Spirilla are long, slender, and have a #spiral or #corkscrew shape. The difference between the two groups is that Spirilla have #flagella (long appendages that facilitate motility). . #red #coral #drknittygritty #catania #crochetgram #haken #craft #hakeln #Schachenmayr #handmade #handwerk #instacrochet #crochetaddict #crochetlove #bestofover #assemblyapp #crochettoy #crochetlove #microbiota #microbiology #animacules #malecrochet

Since when do #bacteria have #hair 💇 Pro tip: they don't! These are the peritrichous flagella of #ecoli Photo credit: @rathgeberchris . . . Bacteria use #flagella to swim in liquid medium or on top of solid medium 🏊‍♂️ Although it appears similar to eukaryotic flagella, they are structurally unrelated! . . #cell #microscope #swim #water #justkeepswimming #dori #fishy #fish #tail #champ #microscopy #microbe #microbiology #stain #dye #gem #littlebeauties #science #didyouknow #fact #funfact
I’ve been pretty ill this past week with a nasty bout of gastroenteritis. I figured instead of microbes making me ill, they may as well make me some money too!

This Microalgae, a spherical colonial flagellate, is in the genus Eudorina. Using 200x I move the focal plane through the sphere to show the cells structures within.

Synura is a colonial microalgae, found here from a freshwater pond. They move via flagella and can form large blooms under their preferred conditions. #algae #phycology #colonial #golden #algal #sphere #plant #photosynthesis #bloom #microbe #microbes #pondlife #freshwater #group #species #flagella #microbiology #ecology #science #tropical #ornate #micrography #sciart #algaebloom #eco

When you have an exam review, studying, an experiment, 2 classes, dentist appointment for your child all before 2, then realize you have an extra credit project due in 20 min and you haven’t even started🤦🏻‍♀️.. you do what you best, drink Starbucks and GET IT DONE (and take selfies In the process).. I didn’t even brush my hair, or put wax on my braces, WHAT IS LIFE 😩😩#pain #quadshot #keepsmesane #flagella #everyonelovescake #snapfirpicsonly #momshit #mydayoff #doesntseemlikeit
