Microscope Peers Into A Mouse’s Brain
Researchers have used the superresolution fluorescence microscopy method known as STED, or stimulated emission depletion, to acquire images of a neuron inside the brain of a living adult mouse (Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.1215369). Katrin I. Willig and Stefan W. Hell at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, in Göttingen, Germany, and coworkers used a STED microscope to shine beams of light through a glass-sealed . . .
