About the Background Image:

Self-repeating montage of a fluorescence image of a hippocampal neuron (without its soma.) 
The cell was grown in
autaptic culture, fixed, and immuno-stained for synaptophysin and MAP-2. The subsequent fluorescence stain was done with Alexa© labelled secondary antibodies.
If you intend to use this image you will be welcome to do so in case you
contact us before.
Higher resolution files are available also upon request.  Full or partial reproduction
of this image (and any other usage and distribution) is subject to our prior written approval.
We are generally happy to share with anyone whoever may be interested in neuroscience.
