Looking inside the body with indirect light

Light provides all our visual information, but it reaches our eyes in different ways. Direct light comes unperturbed, straight from the source, whereas indirect light bounces off different surfaces, such as walls or ceilings, ...

Blood vessel

The blood vessels are the part of the circulatory system that transport blood throughout the body. There are three major types of blood vessels: the arteries, which carry the blood away from the heart, the capillaries, which enable the actual exchange of water and chemicals between the blood and the tissues; and the veins, which carry blood from the capillaries back towards the heart.
