062: François Guillemot lab – The Lab Pillars

Our two canvases represent two of the current pillars of the lab.
This canvas shows adult neural stem cells, with their typical long radial processes, in various states of cell activation. They are depicted either in their natural niche, the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus, where they contribute to memory formation, or sprouting from a tissue culture dish, where their response to various stimuli can be studied in a detailed and controlled manner.
