10x_DG Engram Cells: This image represents a coronal section of hippocampal dentate gyrus (DG) from a mouse model of early Alzheimer’s disease (AD). These AD mice exhibit severe β-amyloid plaques (red) in the DG at 9-months of age. Using these mice combined with a novel viral strategy, engram cells (green; non-engram cells are in blue) for a contextual fear memory were tagged with a light-sensitive protein channelrhodopsin-2.
