Survival of a Motor Neuron Open Access (recommended)
2018 Honorable Mention, Northwestern Scientific Images Contest. Motor neurons are the part of the bodys nervous system responsible for movement. The upper motor neurons (UMNs) are located in the brain and carry information to the spinal cord, controlling most voluntary movements. In this image, the UMN (green) has survived, compared to the other dead cells and neurons (red). This helps us understand the conditions that favor upper motor neuron survival.
