About this work


Confocal micrograph of the anterior region of the developing zebrafish brain (consisting of the telencephalon, part of diencephalon and the optic tectum). Some of the neurons (shown in green) express the green fluorescent protein (GFP) under the control of specific gene expression. Axons, tracts and neuropils have been labeled using antibodies that mark tubulin (in red) and synaptic vesicles (in blue). Tubulin is important for microtubule formation and cell structure, whereas synaptic vesicles are important for neuronal signalling.
