“You see molecules moving randomly and then, for a few milliseconds, interacting with each other.
“Control of these critical moments define neurotransmission and allow brain cells to communicate efficiently.”
The technique has led to a series of papers from Professor Meunier’s team published in the Journal of Cell Biology and Nature Communications.
