Voltage Tester for Beating Cardiac Cells

Researchers have successfully recorded current in membrane channels of contracting cardiac cells using the patch clamp technique and an atomic force microscope.
The image shows two subtypes of serotonin neurons in a mouse brain. The neurons are stained in a festive red and green.

Serotonin Neuron Subtypes

New research into serotonin neuron subtypes could help in better understanding of SIDS and depression treatments.
The image shows the neurons which send the hunting impulse to the movement control area in the zebrafish brain.

Which Dot Will They Hunt?

Researchers shed light on the neural circuitry involved in the behavior which allows young zebrafish to capture their prey.
