Fig. 6

The three-dimensional architecture images of capillaries in the tibial nerve captured by confocal laser scanning microscopy. Each stacked image represents a sagittal view. Upper and lower parts of the images correspond to the proximal and distal parts of the distal tibial nerve, respectively. The white arrows indicate the microvascular ramifications. The capillaries of the intra-tibial nerve in a young rat seemed to be more compact than those of an elderly rat (a a young rat, b an elderly rat). Scale bar 100 μm
