Paper Abstract

A rotating microscope has been developed which can rotate around a single, living embryo. The purpose of this instrument is to allow the investigator to take mosaic images covering the whole surface of the embryo at regular time intervals. Such data is essential to an analysis of the cell motions and interactions involved in the first steps of the morphogenesis of the brain. Because the degrees of freedom and the image processing problems are so similar to photography of the earth from satellites, I have called this "LANDSAT" photography of embryos.
