Peter Westenskow from the Friedlander Laboratory at Scripps sends this rather excellent neovascular Santa tuft for everyone to enjoy for Christmas and the New Year. Thanks Peter!
Peter was a star graduate student here at the Moran Eye Center in Sabine Fuhrmann’s laboratory and has done amazing science in his post-doc at Scripps. He’s decided to start looking for his first faculty position, so if you have any spots, give him a shout.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you from all of us at Webvision. This image, a Christmas wreath created by Robert E. Marc is composed of 104 rod bipolar cell axonal fields from the world’s first complete connectome with synaptic level resolution. Each bipolar cell in this field has been annotated from ultrastructural data revealing its extent and connectivities to other cell classes. The rod bipolar cells have been rendered out in 3D and is viewed from the top, or photoreceptor side, looking down towards the ganglion cell layer.
