First Place: “Cortical Forest,” is from Linus Manubens-Gil, South East University. Mouse Layer V cortical neurons eYFP-labeled (Thy1-H) and imaged after CLARITY processing of a whole brain. Maximum projection with depth color coding.
Second Place: “Radiating Neurons,” from Karthik Krishnamurthy, Davide Trotti and Piera Pasinelli, Thomas Jefferson University. Four-week-old rat cortical neurons labeled for dendrites (red), axons (green) and nuclei (blue).
Third Place: “The Waterdrop Hippocampus,” from Tallie Z. Baram, Jeremy Barry and Joan Morris, University California Irvine. “The brain is everywhere to us neuroscientists,” they said. “This exquisite hippocampus, with delicate dendrites, is actually a waterdrop captured at lightspeed.”
