Mysteries of neurological disorders being revealed by research scientists

Zeiss LSM 780 laser scanning microscope provides high resolution and fast imaging for studies on neuronal structure, function, and neuro development. Scientists at the National Institute of Health’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) are focused on neuroscience research, investigating such areas as molecular biophysics, synapses and circuits, neuronal development, integrative neuroscience, brain imaging, neurological disorders, and stroke. At one lab, researchers are using Drosophila as a model system to understand how the balance of reliability and flexibility is achieved and regulated in neural circuits, and its functional implications in physiological and pathological conditions. The tools for morphological study require very high resolution images of neurons and processes and fast imaging to record neuron activity. Seeking the highest temporal and spatial resolution and the best optics, the lab…
