Neurons, In Vitro Color!

More Edinger-Westphal neurons in culture. Stained for Tubulin (green) and Synapsin (red). Of course, colocalization makes yellow. Imaged with a Zeiss Axioskop 2 FS Plus equipped with a Zeiss Axiocam HRm. 100x total magnification.

    How very cool! My gf does these types of cultures sometimes in her lab - awesome that you could share it!

    i've started a group that gathers all kinds of weird photo techniques Experimental Photography Techniques - and this could surely qualify. I hope for people to also contribute tutorials and discussion, I'm sure this would be unique (although outside anyone's budget to gather the apparatus and grow or buy the cultures :) )

    I truly love this picture. I'm a scientist myself, working on neurological diseases, and I'm defending my PhD in a few weeks. Would you mind if I use the picture as a background on the invitation I will send around to my friends? Would you maybe want to share the original (higher resolution) with me? Thanks! Sarah
