"My, What a Beautiful Brain You Have!"

I asked for and was given the pathology slides prepared from the tissue taken during the surgery on August 12. Liz Boyd took pitures of the slides using the microscope in George Rossman's lab at Caltech (Geology). She also measured Raman and fluorescence spectra.

I actually have no idea what the various features are in these pictures. Can someone enlighten us regarded the structures shown in these images?
