Regeneration of olfactory afferent axons in the locust brain



Confocal image of a locust brain 14 days after one antenna had been crushed. Antennal afferents were anterogradely labeled with Neurobiotin (magenta). Aberrantly regenerated olfactory receptor axons have grown through the antennocerebral tract into the mushroom body. Counterstaining: phalloidin (green) and DAPI (blue).
