Description: This image is a pseudo-colored maximum intensity projection of a medium spiny neuron from the dorsal striatum of a mouse, taken by a Zeiss 880 confocal microscope. The mice were perfused with a dilute solution of MKO1 formulated to bind with dendritic actin, and a dilute solution of GFP formulated to bind with the cell membrane. The two stains were isolated using spectral unmixing and online fingerprinting, using the Zen program.
