High Resolution Confocal Imaging that Accurately Captures Localization of Synapse Region in Cultured Neurons

Juni 2022

A research group consisting of Professor Kohtaro TAKEI and Research associate Dr. Ryohei NISHIDA, et al., at the Molecular Medical Bioscience Lab, Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medical Life Science, is researching the involvement of the LOTUS neural circuit forming factor in the formation of synapses which are the joints of nerve cells, as well as memory function in the hippocampus, the memory related brain region. This application note introduces a case study that accurately captured the localization of marker molecules in the synapse region, utilizing the high resolution and large field of view features of the AX R confocal microscope.
