microscope: Confocal Zeiss LSM700
description: Here shown is an organotypic hippocampal slice of a mouse brain, which was kept in culture for over 2 weeks before fixation. Labelled in blue are all cell bodies (DAPI), to show the outer contours of the slice. In green is the genetic labelling of GAD65-GFP, indicating a subset of inhibitory neurons that express this protein
