The neuron is a highly complex and specialized cell with intricate networks of molecules that dynamically interact to propagate or restrict signals in order to allow for the development, function, and maintenance of a well-tuned neuron working within a neural circuit. The burgeoning of high-resolution imaging techniques and optical probes to label single-molecules allows neuroscientists to visualize the elaborate and dynamic relationship of critical components of the underlying cellular architecture and components of the synapse to appreciate how they define and influence the physiological properties of a neuron.
In this webinar, Daniel Choquet, Xiaowei Zhuang, and Stephan Sigrist will discuss how super-resolution imaging can elucidate the inner workings of neurons at the single-molecule and macro-molecular levels using specialized probes and optical techniques they have helped design and pioneer in the field of neuroscience.
