The image depicts myelinated fibers identified by the expression of Mbp (Gold) and Oligodendrocyte Precursor Cells (Magenta) in the striatum of an adult mouse brain. Myelin insulates axons and allows the fast conduction of the electrical signal. Myelin is produced by specialized cells called oligodendrocytes. Image captured by Andrea D.
