A node of Ranvier: a single teased sciatic nerve fibre stained for neurofilament (red) and neurofascin (green). Neurofascin is present at the node (centre) and at the paranodal axoglial junctions that flank the node. Confocal micrograph
Cells in the cerebellum, a region of the brain important for balance and movement. The branching green cell is a Purkinje cell.
Adult rat dorsal root ganglion sensory neuron immunostained for Glial Acidic Protein 43 (GAP43) cultured on a laminin substratum in the presence of Nerve Growth Factor, Neurotrophin-3 and Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor.
An interneuron in the hippocampus, computer-coloured.
Confocal microscope image of a developing Purkinje cell in the cerebellum of a 9 day postnatal rat. The cerebellum contains millions of these cells which are involved with integrating motor and sensory information in the fine coordination of movement.
