Synaptic zinc in the mouse brain.

A section of mouse brain that has been stained to reveal the areas where zinc is stored at synapses (so that it can be used as a neurotransmitter). The intensity of the stain is proportional to the amount of zinc, so the darker regions contain higher levels of synaptic zinc. Hpc: hippocampus; A: amygdala; A1: auditory neocortex; V1 visual neocortex.
