Molecules in the hippocampus
The hippocampus promotes the transition of information from short-term memory to long-term memory. The picture shows structures in the hippocampus by labelling molecules in glia cells (green), in synapses (red) and in processes of nerve cells (blue).
Image aquisition technique: Epifluorescence.
Artistic processing: Photoshop filter “Glowing Edges“.
