Microscale
connection between individual nerve cells
1 of 8
Mescoscale
general area of connection between groups of similar neurons
2 of 8
Macroscale
overall distribution of nerve bundles- made up of many different kinds of neurons
3 of 8
chemical tracers
transported into cells and bind to surface receptor (eg Fast blue)
4 of 8
viruses
infect cells via specific receptors- can target specific cells
5 of 8
anterograde tracers
travel from the cell body/soma to the synapse
6 of 8
retrograde tracers
travel from the synapse down the axon to the cell body
7 of 8
trans-synaptic
can be anterograde/retrograde- shows synaptic connection between neurons
