Exploring Neurons and Synapses: Imaging Tools and Techniques

Available Now On Demand:

In the coming years, considerable effort and resources will be directed at understanding the neural connections of the brain.

This webinar examines many of the tools being used to study how neurons interact with one another at their synapses.

This event will provide both experienced and novice researchers with an excellent overview of the current optical imaging methods driving neuroscience today.

This webinar features:

• An introduction to STED super-resolution imaging technology

• The application of STED imaging and other techniques for studying the overall organization of the synaptic bouton and for analyzing synaptic vesicle recycling and the localization of synaptic proteins

• A description of how STED microscopy has helped to refine our understanding of the morphological and functional dynamics of synapses in living specimens

• A live question and answer session
