These sections show the bilateral nature of the mushroom bodies, with the right lobe structure stained with FASII and the left lobe structure colored as in Figure 1. The heel/g lobe are in blue, the a/b collateral lobes are in reddish-brown, and the a'/b' collateral lobes are in grey. Correspondingly, FASII shows three levels of staining: weak in the heel and g lobe, strong in the a/b lobes, and absent in the a'/b' lobes. Because this photograph shows sections through the middle of the brain, at the level of the a/b lobes, only the posterior portion of the g lobe is visible.
