Axon trajectories into the nerve ring of the nematode C. elegans
Interneuron cell bodies and axons labelled with GFP under the control of the glr-1 promoter. Pictures in multiple focal planes were recorded with a LEICA TCS-NT confocal microscope and deconvolved with Huygens2 software. Dorsal view (maximum projection) of an animal illustrating the AVJL and AVJR axon trajectories (arrowheads) from the dorsal side. Despite the large nuber of labelled axons in the ring the AVJ axons can be clearly followed.
