Revealing Secrets Hiding in Plain Sight

Session Date: 
Dec 8, 2017
Session Order: 

A grand goal in brain research is to understand how the interplay of structural, chemical, and electrical signals in and between neurons, glia, and the vasculature give rise to normal and abnormal functioning of nervous systems. New technologies are hastening progress as biologists make use of an increasingly powerful arsenal of tools and technologies for obtaining data, from the level of molecules to whole organs. This talk will highlight projects in which development and application of new contrasting methods and imaging tools have allowed us to observe otherwise complex or hidden relationships between cellular, subcellular, and molecular constituents of cells, particularly those comprising the brain.
