Hi Oscar, I am having a lot of trouble uploading these high resolution images I just took. I compressed them to jpeg format so that they would be small enough to upload and they are still not uploading correctly. I will try to get these new ones to you and my donors as soon as I can. Sincerely,

Hi Oscar! To answer your first question, the entire neuron is labeled! In the image above, you can only see the fluorescent cell bodies because the signal (labeling) for the rather thin axons, dendrites and synaptic terminals is too small for us to see at that magnification! However, by increasing the power, we are able to see labeling in those thin projections! Fortunately, the software we are using is sensitive enough to pick up those signals, and thus we are able to map even the smallest projections and synaptic connections without having to selectively stain cytoskeletal elements!!
