Brain Cells with Gene Therapy (IMAGE) Imperial College London Caption Image 1 shows brain cells from a mouse cortex that didn't receive the gene therapy. The amyloid plaques are shown in green, and the glial cells, which surround the plaques, are shown in red (microglia) and magenta (astrocytes). Image 2 shows a mouse cortex that received the gene therapy, and so had fewer amyloid plaques.
