Neurons from brain tissue samples of people with schizophrenia showed greater deviation, both from neurons from samples of people without the condition and from others with schizophrenia. Researchers say the structure of the neurons is unique to each individual with schizophrenia.
A clusterization approach allows researchers to analyze dendritic spines in new ways.
New microscopy technology images the position of biomolecules with precision down to a few nanometers inside whole cells and tissues.
Combining two-photon fluorescent microscopy and all-optical laser scanning, researchers can image the brain of an alert mouse 1,000 times a second, recording the passage of millisecond electrical pulses through neurons.
Ion channels use a "ball-and-chain" mechanism to help regulate ion flow. Findings confirm a long-standing hypothesis about ion channels and provide key advances in understanding the basic biological processes at work.
Combining advance microscopy techniques and artificial intelligence, researchers reconstruct the entire vascular network of a mouse brain down to its finest details.
Combining advanced microscopy and mathematical modeling, researchers have discovered a pattern that governs the growth of neurons.
Microscopy study sheds light on the function of two calcium homeostasis modulators.
