The image shows shapes and tracks of cells extracted from live imaging of the zebrafish forebrain. Flat enveloping layer cells (top) have been separated from forebrain neural plate cells (middle). Tracks of selected neural plate cells (bottom) are colour-coded by depth from the embryo surface.

The themed issue "Systems morphodynamics: understanding the development of tissue hardware" also features a review by Guy Blanchard titled "Taking the strain: quantifying the contributions of all cell behaviours to changes in epithelial shape".
