Mouse Brain Tissue

The digital image presented in this section is a three-dimensional reconstruction of mouse cerebellum tissue that was fixed with paraformaldehyde and stained with Alexa Fluor 488 (neurofilaments), Alexa Fluor 405 (histones), and Alexa Fluor 568 (GFAP). The cerebellum's most important role is the control of motor movement, but also functions to maintain posture and balance. It has also been suggested in several studies that the cerebellum also plays a part in non-motor functions such as cognition and certain emotional functions.
