Caption: Brain nerve cells. Confocal light micrograph showing genetically engineered astrocyte nerve cells. Astrocytes are a type of glial cell. They provide structural support and protection for neurons (nerve cells) and also supply them with nutrients and oxygen. The cells cannot transmit electrical signals and so insulate neurons from one another. These have been genetically modified in order to provide greater support to dying neurons caused by genetic disorders such as muscular dystrophy.
