Abstract: Through the study of two absorption spectral features in the optical range (Mg2 and the 4000 Angstrom break), we find evidence for star formation in the inner regions of cooling-flow galaxies. In addition, the analysis of line-strength gradients reveals that they are probably different from those of normal giant ellipticals.
