Image at left with black background: In the eye of a transgenic mouse, a single motion-sensitive visual cell in the retina (green) has highlighted the neighbouring visual cells it is in contact with (purple). This was achieved by infecting it with a specially modified virus that can only cross from one neuron to another that it is in contact with (Yonehara et al., Nature, 2011).
