Hippocampus

The hippocampus of a human brain is illuminated with multiple fluorescent proteins. Boston scientist Osamu Shimomura won the Nobel Prize for his discovery of a light-emitting protein in jellyfish. Harvard neuroscientists are applying that finding to create "brainbows" for research. (Courtesy of Jeff Lichtman/Harvard University)
