Certain cells of the fetal rat brain receive a signal telling them to self-destruct ( a process called apoptosis). This image shows 3 such cells (in the circle) that are in the apoptotic process. What is the advantage of such programmed cell death? This is still being explored but we know that apoptosis helps ensure that neurons that are not being used are removed - thus saving precious brain energy. This image was captured by 2005 Summer Scholar Haley Bartholomew working in Dr. Mickley's laboratory.
