"In this image we used immunofluorescence imaging to visualize a class of nerve cells called parvalbumin-positive inhibitory neurons. Changes in the number of this neuron type has been implicated in many neurological diseases including schizophrenia. To understand their influence, we need to be able to visualize this specific class of inhibitory neurons."
