Your brain drives me crazy

These three fluorescent images are taken from the same brain slice, imaged in different colours using Confocal Microscopy. The left shows areas where two potassium ion channels are located, stained in green and red, respectively. Places of their similar locations appear in yellow. The middle image adds blue (cell nuclei) over green and red. The picture on the right adds magenta to all previous colours, which highlights axon initial segments - parts of neurons where electrical signal occurs. Confocal Microscopy is used for protein localisation within the brain. In my case, I use it to study mechanisms of hearing disorders.​
