Subject Matter:

Imaging of the formation of the anterior hindbrain from a flat sheet of neural plate cells in a zebrafish embryo

- see: Zebrafish (400x)
Technique:

Confocal Timelapse


see: confocal

The video demonstrates the formation of the anterior hindbrain from a flat sheet of neural plate cells in a zebrafish embryo. In particular, we view the patterns of the nervous system, which are important for understanding human disease.  Membrane and nuclear fluorescent proteins were used to label the cells.
