Hippocampus and Cortex. To trace the longer pathways that interconnect different brain regions, scientists have developed a genetic method to label each individual nerve cell a different color to identify and track axons and dendrites over long distances.

"brainbow"- images of pathways taken by neurons in the brain (a mouse brain that is). Different colored fluorescence indicate individual neurons.

To trace the longer pathways that interconnect different brain regions, CBS labs developed a genetic method to label each individual nerve cell a different color to identify and track axons and dendrites over long distances.

Living neurons firing The micrograph shows living neuronal cells. In a gene-modified procedure different components of the cells are coloured by fluorescent proteins, so that two different structure components, tubulin and actin, obtain different colours.

Purkinje nerve cells in the cerebellum

Triple fluorescent labeled section; Purkinje neurons are labeled green, the glia are labeled blue and cell nuclei are labeled red.

The retina contains five classes of neurons: photoreceptors (purple), horizontal cells (yellow), bipolar neurons (green), amacrine cells (pink and blue), and ganglion cells (pink and blue). In this cross section of an adult mouse retina, only a subset of bipolar cells, “the ON bipolar cells” are visible by their expression of GFP (green). The pink and blue speckled striations at the bottom of the image mark the fiber layer, which contains the ganglion cell axons that will form the optic…

Retinal Neurons The mature retina contains five classes of neurons: photoreceptors (purple), horizontal cells (yellow), bipolar neurons (green), amacrine cells (pink and blue), and ganglion cells.

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of neurons (nerve cells) in the corpus striatum of a foetal brain. Each neuron consists of a cell body (red) surrounded by many extensions called dendrites. Dendrites collect information from other neurons or from sensory cells. Each neuron also has one process called an axon, which passes information to other neurons. The corpus striatum, which forms part of the basal ganglia deep in the cerebral hemispheres, is involved in the control of posture…

Image of neurons and glial cells (non-neural brain cells) cultured in a Petri dish. The “skeleton” of neurons and glia – molecules called microtubules – are labeled in green and blue. Photograph: Uwe Konietzko, University of Zurich
