Transplanted cells in the rat brain

The transplantation of cells into damaged regions of patients with Parkinson or stroke is a therapeutic option for the future which however bears the risk of serious side effects. Therefore intensive research in animal models is still needed and continues. Here, green fluorescent cells (GFP) are visible which were transplanted into the striatum of a rat brain. How these cells do behave after transplantation can be illustrated in high spatial resolution by laser scanning microscopy.
