Acute neuronal necrosis cerebellum 2
The cells circled in green in this image are Purkinje cells. Purkinje cells are found in the cerebellum between the granule cell layer (dark blue cells on the left) and the molecular layer (the big pink area taking up most of the right side of this picture). These Purkinje cells are bright red, which is an indicator of injury. Purkinje cells are very sensitive to hypoxia, and are among the first cells to die in cerebral ischemia. Note that it is only the Purkinje cells which are bright red - the granule cells and the cells in the molecular layer remain blue.
