The retina contains five classes of neurons: photoreceptors (purple), horizontal cells (yellow), bipolar neurons (green), amacrine cells (pink and blue), and ganglion cells (pink and blue). In this cross section of an adult mouse retina, only a subset of bipolar cells, “the ON bipolar cells” are visible by their expression of GFP (green). The pink and blue speckled striations at the bottom of the image mark the fiber layer, which contains the ganglion cell axons that will form the optic…

Retinal Neurons The mature retina contains five classes of neurons: photoreceptors (purple), horizontal cells (yellow), bipolar neurons (green), amacrine cells (pink and blue), and ganglion cells.

Living neurons firing The micrograph shows living neuronal cells. In a gene-modified procedure different components of the cells are coloured by fluorescent proteins, so that two different structure components, tubulin and actin, obtain different colours.

The firing of neurons in the human brain – using a substance that makes the nerve fluoresce scientists are able to take pictures of the brain in action.

✯ Nerve cells and glial cells, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The nerve cells have small cell bodies (orange) and fine extensions called axons and dendrites (brown). The glial cells have large cell bodies (blue) with thicker extensions (pale green). Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body. Glial cells are nervous system cells that provide the neurons with structural support and…
