Movement

Cells derived from the bone marrow can travel into the brain and merge (fuse) with damaged neurons leading to their repair. The 3D laser-scanning confocal image depicts a cerebellar Purkinje neuron (green) that has fused with a green fluorescently labelled bone marrow cell. Image credit: Dr Kevin Kemp
