From: Quantitative assessment of microglial morphology and density reveals remarkable consistency in the distribution and morphology of cells within the healthy prefrontal cortex of the rat

Figure 2

Microglial morphology is consistent across cortical layers of the prefrontal cortex. Sholl analysis of microglia according to cortical layer location yielded regular patterns of morphological characteristics. Maxima for all measures were observed approximately 15 μm from the soma, followed by steady tapering in size and complexity. Values are expressed as mean ± standard error of the mean.
