Mouse Embryo Cerebellum
This photo shows the cerebellum (a part of the brain) of a mouse embryo. Multiplying neurons are shown in red. Purkinje cells, a specific kind of neuron important for the regulation of fine movements, equilibrium, and posture, are shown in green. Blue color indicates all the cell nuclei. This image was taken as part of a NIAMS-supported study of the effect of the enzyme Ezh2 on the development of neurons in the embryonic brain.
