The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) news portal reports:
The FENS Communication Committee and the European Journal of Neuroscience (EJN) are delighted to announce that the winner of the FENS-EJN Image Competition 2022 is Sandra Süß with the image “Hidden Species”. The image will be featured on the cover of the European Journal of Neuroscience, the FENS website and at the FENS Forum 2022 congress centre in Paris, France!
Comment by Sandra Süß on her cover image:
“Exploring the brain as a neuroscientist sometimes feels like being an astronaut exploring the universe looking for new species. The image reflects an immunohistochemically processed mouse brain slice showing PKC-delta immunoreactive cells (blue) in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis. Using an AAV-based fluorescent labelling, serotonergic axon terminals (yellow) arising from the dorsal raphe nucleus were visualized. The photomicrograph was captured with a confocal laser scanning microscope, rotated by 90 degrees, and mirrored vertically to create a face-like structure.”
