Description: This is a zoomed-in image of the substantia nigra of a mouse brain 3 days after injection of neurotoxin MPTP. The astrocytes, microglia, and nuclei have been labelled with immunofluorescent markers. The intricacy of glial activation creates an impression of stars in the night sky. (Confocal, immunohistochemistry, 20x)
