This brainbow image from Harvard Center for Brain Science demonstrates a novel imaging technique whereby researchers genetically label individual neurons. This allows their axons and dendrites to be identified and traced.
” Here individual neurons of the dentate gyrus, a layer of the hippocampus, project their dendrites to the outer layer, where they receive input from the cortex. Neurogenesis occurs inside the “V,” where neurons are born and then migrate outward toward the dentate gryus .”
