Description: Maximum intensity projection of larval lamprey, P. marinus, reticulospinal neurons retrogradely labeled with 10 kDa Dextran Texas Red in BABB cleared wholemount brain. The neurons shown are located in the midbrain and project to the spinal cord. Tissue was scanned using a Nikon C2 confocal microscope with a 20x Plan Apo objective to a depth of approximately 0.1 mm, using 2 micrometer z-steps.
