  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. Notable Papers: An Easier Way To Make Stem Cells?

    We’ve talked about work out of the RIKEN Institute before here on Webvision.  The work that comes out of there is clever and often unconventional.  The latest work from the RIKEN that seems to have gotten a bit of attention is two recent papers from Haruko Obokata and colleagues, here and here that discuss almost inconceivably simple […]

  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 […]
