Slice of adult mouse olfactory bulb, in which so-called newborn neurons are observed. They have just been born, yet in an adult brain. These neurons are marked in green due to a lentiviral vector coding for GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein). The nuclei of all cells are marked in blue. The nuclei of active neurons are marked in red. The image was obtained by confocal microscopy on a slice of brain following an immunohistochemical reaction (a method of locating proteins in cells).

Slice of adult mouse olfactory bulb, in which s neurons are observed. These are marked in green due to a lentiviral vector coding for GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein). In red is a principal cell (mitral cell) of the main bulb. This red marking was obtained following electrophysiological recording and diffusion of a tracer in the cell cytoplasm. The image was obtained by confocal microscopy on a slice of brain following an immunohistochemical reaction (a method of locating proteins in cells).

Slice of adult mouse olfactory bulb, in which so-called newborn neurons are observed. They have just been born, yet in an adult brain. These neurons appear on the image in white due to a lentiviral vector coding for GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein). The image was obtained by confocal microscopy, on a slice of brain, following an immunohistochemical reaction (a method of locating proteins in cells).

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
