Representative 3D confocal imaging stacks displaying astrocyte morphological characteristics. Round, small cells likely in a state of movement or mitosis (A, black arrowhead) cluster together as if they were locally synchronized (B, arrow). Cells larger than the small, round cells of A, with more extended processes (C, white arrow) are likely adhered to the catheter surface. CF Cells forming a network have been denoted as sheets of cells. Cells lining the walls of the shunt catheter holes (C, D, F, black arrow) seem to appear prior to cell masses crossing the hole to the opposite wall (E, F, white arrow). Scale bar represents 100 µm
