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.

Neurons (in blue to yellow) growing on top of astrocytes (in red, helper cells within the nervous system) in a human stem cell embryoid body (a cluster of differentiating human embryonic stem cells).

Confocal microscopy images of the retina / visual system. This is a 4-day old zebrafish embryo, with the layers of the retina and their connections to the brain made visible by fluorescent proteins.

This frontal transverse section of a zebrafish depicts the path of the optic nerve from the retina to the optic tectum.

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.

The firing of neurons in the human brain – using a substance that makes the nerve fluoresce scientists are able to take pictures of the brain in action.

The Cell: An Image Library. Confocal image of pastel neurons in the hippocampus of a "Brainbow" mouse brain, with each neuron expressing a distinct color. In Brainbow mice, neurons randomly choose combinations of red, yellow and cyan fluorescent proteins.

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.
