LMB 365 – Day 60

This image for day 60 of #LMB365 shows a handful of pseudocoloured hippocampal neurons (brain cells) that have been specifically targeted with DNA expressing a fluorescent protein which has allowed Jake Watson to visualise them. In Ingo Greger’s group in the Neurobiology Division they modify specific cells in order to understand how synapses, the sites of communication between cells, transmit information.
