Description: This micrograph of vimentin IHC-DAB staining reveals two astrocytes directly contacting blood vessels and branching toward each other in the human caudate nucleus. I am counting and tracing vimentin-immunoreactive astrocytes to describe the distribution and morphology of human astrocytes in multiple brain regions. This work is part of a larger project aimed at realizing the first regional characterisation of human astrocytes.
