Neuron expressing actin fused to green fluorescent protein (GFP), in dissociated hippocampal neurons (orange marking) in rats. It reveals actin enrichment in the dendritic spines, these small protrusions that represent the excitatory post-synapses. The phalloidin in blue is a filamentous actin marker in the surrounding neurons. This image was produced by confocal microscopy.
