Description

Montage image of a brain stem from a Brainbow transgenic mouse. In Brainbow mice, neurons randomly choose combinations of red, yellow and cyan fluorescent proteins, so that they each glow a particular color. This provides a way to distinguish neighboring neurons and visualize brain circuits. These are large caliber axons of the auditory pathway. First Prize, 2007 Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition. For additional details see: Livet J, Weissman TA, Kang H, Draft RW, Lu J, Bennis RA, Sanes JR, Lichtman JW. Nature. 2007 Nov 1;450(7166):56-62.
