Two-Photon Microscopy Helps View Calcium Sensors in Brain Cells

Two-Photon Microscopy Helps View Calcium Sensors in Brain Cells

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have mapped the sound-processing part of the mouse brain in a way that keeps both the proverbial forest and the trees in view. Their imaging technique allows zooming in and out on views of brain activity within mice, and it enabled the team to watch brain cells light up as mice “called” to each other. [More]

HHMI Thunder Tools Analyze Active Zebrafish Brain Images Taken with New Microscope

In an age of “big data,” a single computer cannot always find the solution a user wants. Computational tasks must instead be distributed across a cluster of computers that analyze a massive data set together. It's how Facebook and Google mine your web history to present you with targeted ads, and how Amazon and Netflix recommend your next favorite book or movie. But big data is about more than just marketing. [More]

Multi-Wavelength Laser Overcomes Limitations of Serial Time-Encoded Amplified Microscopy for Ultrafast Imaging

Multi-Wavelength Laser Overcomes Limitations of Serial Time-Encoded Amplified Microscopy for Ultrafast Imaging

Ultrafast real-time optical imaging is an effective and important tool for studying dynamical events, such as shock waves, neural activity, laser surgery and chemical dynamics in living cells. Limited by the frame rate, conventional imaging system such as charge-coupled device (CCD) and complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) imaging device can not image fast dynamic processes.
