Phase contrast microscopy of living cells offers the ability to observe dynamic behaviors. This single frame image shows folds in the membrane at the periphery of a cell in growing in vitro. Asterisks indicate vacuoles associated with the pinocytosis of fluid from the extracellular environment. Image by Charles Pomerat, and published in Fawcett (1964) J. Histochem.
