  1. Happy Holidays, 2014 From Webvision

    We at Webvision would like to wish you the very best this holiday season.  As in past years, we like to post an image from retinal science that is somehow evocative of the Holiday Season and this year, Gabe Luna from the Steve Fisher / Geoff Lewis laboratory delivers a stunning image of astrocytes in a […]

  2. GFAP And Collagen IV In Retina

    Friend of Webvision, Gabriel Luna sent this laser confocal image of a wholemount from a normal mouse retina immuno-stained with anti-GFAP (red; astrocytes) and anti-Collagen IV (blue; blood vessels).  Gabe is out of the Steve Fisher and Geoff Lewis’s retinal cell biology group at UC Santa Barbara Neuroscience Research Institute. Thanks Gabe!

  3. Astrocytes and Vasculature

    This laser confocal image shows a GFP transgenic mouse retina under the control of the GFAP promoter stained with anti-Collagen IV (blue), anti-GFAP (red) and anti-GFP (green).  These labels not only show the spatial relationship of individual astrocytes to one another, but also the vasculature.   Image provided by Gabriel Luna out of the Steve Fisher and Geoff […]

  4. Retinal Half Mosaic

    This beautiful image is another by Gabriel Luna out of Steve Fisher and Geoff Lewis’s retinal cell biology group at UC Santa Barbara Neuroscience Research Institute that shows a small mosaic of the outer plexiform layer in mouse retina stained with anti-Calbindin D (green; horizontal cells) PNA (red; cone terminals) and GFP for bipolar cells (blue).  I love the regular order […]

  5. Optic Nerve Head

    Another amazing image sent to us by Gabriel Luna out of the Steve Fisher and Geoff Lewis’s retinal cell biology group at UC Santa Barbara Neuroscience Research Institute.  This image is of the optic nerve head of a normal mouse retina displaying the “glial tubes” formed by the astrocytic network (anti-GFAP; red).  Anti-GFP (green) and anti-Collagen IV (blue) which […]

  6. Nerve Fiber Layer (Nikon Small World Winner)

    This years Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition features some amazing work including this laser confocal image of a mouse nerve fiber layer on a retinal flatmount at 40X magnification by Gabriel Luna out of the Steve Fisher and Geoff Lewis’s retinal cell biology group at UC Santa Barbara Neuroscience Research Institute. To see all of […]

  7. ARVO 2011 Snap Shots

    ARVO 2011 has come and gone.  Its taken me a couple of weeks to get through the post ARVO chaos and get caught up on my own work before posting some of the snapshots, but here they are.  If you’d like to post your snapshots from ARVO here, send me an email (webvision@hsc.utah.edu) and we’ll […]
