Cell Adhesion
Cross-section through the eye of a zebrafish embryo, stained to reveal a cell-cell adhesion molecule (red) that holds cells together.

Rat Retina

Neuronal Cells
The mammalian retina consists of at least 60 functionally and morphologically different neuronal cell types. This figure shows the ganglion cell layer of a flat-mounted rat retina.

Zebrafish Neural Retina
Cross-section through the neural retina in a transgenic adult zebrafish; the red and green cells are cone photoreceptors.

Zebrafish Photoreceptors
Head of a zebrafish embryo in which the earliest born photoreceptors (purple) are found in a patch on the ventral side of each eye.

Photoreceptor Cells
Individual photoreceptor cells (green dots and small red rings) in a transgenic zebrafish embryo, viewed through a pavement-like cellular supporting layer (boundaries between cells are stained red).

Cortical Neuron

Cortical Neuron
Cortical neurons from a mouse. Axons are immunostained using an antibody against neurofilament (green); neuronal cell bodies are labeled with a DNA marker DAPI (blue)

Color Vision
In this whole eye from a transgenic zebrafish embryo, green and red dots represent individual cone photoreceptors that detect different wavelengths of light to provide color vision to the fish.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience (UPiN)!  We're a joint program working with outstanding faculty and resources from the departments of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB) and Psychology. The program is co-located and shares many services with the Program in Biology.
