This image shows rabies-virus-labeled neurons (green) in the insula that send projections down to the stomach.
Here can be seen neurons in the central amygdala of a mouse brain. Red, magenta and yellow cells (but not green or blue) are parts of a collection of neurons called the CeAga that has potent pain-suppression abilities.
This is a fluorescence image of retinal layers taken with a confocal microscope from wild, healthy mice (right) and mice genetically bred to show symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (left).
This is a scanning electron microscopic image of a HIV (yellow) infected T cell (red).
A coronal view of a mouse striatum where different neuronal types are stained and a high magnification image showing the high diversity of neuronal populations within the striatum.
Observations in mice support the role of an area known as the claustrum as the “control room” for coordinating activity across the brain.
The cerebral organoid in this image was produced by using human embryonic stem cells. The organ-like cell cultures consist of neural stem cells (green), progenitor cells (red) and nerve cells (white).
Research using brain-like tissue models suggests a possible causal relationship between sporadic Alzheimer’s disease and herpes simplex virus I infection.
Seen here is an array of cyanobacterial cells showing carboxysomes labeled with green fluorescent protein (GFP) and the photosynthetic membranes outlining each cell (magenta).
Using microscopically fine 3D printing technologies and sound waves used as tweezers, scientists have directed the growth of tiny networks of neurons.
