Nociceptive neurons in a fruit fly larva
Nociceptive neurons in a fruit fly larva. The entire body wall of the animal is tiled with the rectangular dendritic arbors of nociceptive neurons. In this animal, DNA encoding the jellyfish-derived red fluorescent protein TdTomato was inserted into the fly genome in such a way that it is expressed only in the nociceptive neurons. This image of a live fly larva was taken by Taylor Follansbee, B.S. '13, M.S. '15 using a confocal laser-scanning microscope.
