Glial Scar Formation at Spinal Cord Injury Epicentre. Montage of the spinal cord lesion epicentre demonstrating the extent of glial scar formation after the injury to the dorsal columns. Immunoreactive GFAP+ staining identifies the location of lesion epicentre (yellow asterisk), validates the paradigm for astrocyte quantification and delineates the presence of the physical/biochemical barrier against axonal regeneration in the matured CNS (dashed line). Scale bars montage 500 μm.
