BRAIN 2015 Digest - 3/16 to 3/20

The focus for the week of 3/16 to 3/20/15 was on creating posts for each BRAIN Initiative September 2014 grant.

Brain Mapping

Atomic Force Microscopy of Live Neurons

Researchers have succeeded in imaging structural dynamics of living neurons with an unprecedented spatial resolution.

The observations of structural dynamics in live neurons present the possibility of visualizing the morphology of synapses at nanometer resolution in real time providing many new insights into mechanisms of how neurons store information in their morphology, how it changes synaptic strength and ultimately how it creates new memory.
