A new microscopy technique allows researchers to capture detailed images of the activity of vast amounts of neurons across different depths in the brain at high speed and clarity.
Cryogenic-electron microscopy allowed researchers to determine the basic building blocks of prion proteins, including the placements of their amino acids.
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.
