See how Mica can help scientists to image the human brain in different imaging modes such as Widefield and Confocal.
Piero Rigo at the Francis Crick Institute in London is interested in the development of the human brain from neural stem cells. As part of his work, he looks at the developing human neocortex at gestational week 18.
Gyrification is observed at the cortical plate, while proliferative neural progenitors, marked by Ki67, MCM2, and SOX2, populate the ventricular-subventricular zone. In the hippocampus, highly proliferative neural stem cells (green) are forming the dentate gyrus.
