Immunofluorescent LM of neurons & astrocytes

Immunofluorescent Light Micrograph of a network of neurons and astrocyte cells, in brain cortex. In the foreground, nerve fibres of neurons (green) are seen in a fine branching network. These fibres are the routes of transmission of nerve impulses. Astrocytes behind them (orange) are large star- shaped connective tissue cells; as part of the neuroglia (" nerve glue" ) they provide mechanical support and nutrients for the neurons. Astrocytes may take part in information storage processes. Immunofluorescence is a staining technique which uses antibodies to attach fluorescent dyes to specific tissues and to molecules within the cell. Magnification: x200 at 35mm, x375 at 6x4.5cm

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate world of neurons and astrocytes in the brain cortex. In a mesmerizing display of colors, nerve fibers of neurons take center stage with their fine branching network, depicted in vibrant green hues. These fibers serve as the vital routes for transmitting nerve impulses throughout the brain. Behind them, large star-shaped connective tissue cells known as astrocytes emerge in striking orange tones. As part of the neuroglia or "nerve glue" these remarkable cells play a crucial role by providing mechanical support and essential nutrients to sustain the neurons. Additionally, there is evidence suggesting that astrocytes may also participate in information storage processes within our complex neural networks. The image was captured using immunofluorescence staining techniques which utilize antibodies to attach fluorescent dyes specifically to tissues and molecules within cells. This technique allows for an enhanced visualization of these microscopic structures. With a magnification level of x200 at 35mm or x375 at 6x4.5cm, this photograph offers us a glimpse into the astonishing complexity and beauty found within our own nervous system. It serves as a reminder of just how intricately interconnected our brains are and highlights the importance of both neurons and astrocytes in maintaining proper brain function.
