Journal of Neuroscience Selects Cover Image from Article Co-authored by Helen Scharfman

New York – An article by Justin Botterill, Helen Scharfman, head of the Scharfman Lab at the CDR, and NKI colleagues Catia Teixeira and John LaFrancois, titled “Bidirectional Regulation of Cognitive and Anxiety-like Behaviors by Dentate Gyrus Mossy Cells in Male and Female Mice,” appears in the March 2021 issue of Journal of Neuroscience. A confocal image submitted with the article, rendered as an oil painting, was selected for the March cover. The image depicts the hippocampal dentate gyrus, with the primary excitatory cell type, the dentate granule cells, in blue. Hilar mossy cells and their axons were labelled using a viral method shown in red.
