ON THE COVER: A 3-dimensional z-stack of images taken with a confocal microscope of synapses (stained green for synaptophysin) being phagocytosed by microglia (stained red for CD68), in the spinal cord of a mouse with knockout of the Abcd1 gene. Mutations in this gene in humans cause adrenoleukodystrophy, one component of which is adrenomyeloneuropathy, in which there is loss of spinal cord synapses.
