Description

Confocal image of synaptic connexions in the mouse olivo-cerebellar system. Purkinje cells (immunofluorescence, blue), olivary axons (anterograde tracing, yellow) and synaptic terminals (immunofluorescence, red) are shown, revealing the highly speci?c organization of neuronal connexions in the mouse cerebellum. Honorable Mention, 2009 Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition®.
