A better resolution in confocal microscopy

Recently, and through a collaboration between the Cellular Imaging Facility1 and the team « Development and Plasticity of Neural Networks »2 an outstanding axial resolution in confocal microscopy in thick sections of the mouse brain has been made possible. This is due to the use of new high refractive index mounting media and systematic deconvolution of confocal data.

Dopamine and Glutamate: criminal (addictive) conspiracy

Dopamine and glutamate receptors are able to physically interact and the resulting protein complexes appear to control some of the responses induced by administrations of drugs of abuse such as cocaine. This observation was recently published in Molecular Psychiatry1 by the team of Jocelyne Caboche and Peter Vanhoutte2. The authors thus show that this protein complex may constitute a therapeutic target to treat drug addiction. [...]
