ZEISS @ SfN15: How Large Scale 3D Electron Microscopy is Revealing Animal Behavior

January 13, 2016
Discover how Dr Josh Morgan, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Lichtman Lab at Harvard University, is trying to understand how the nervous system works by looking at how neurons organize their synapses with one another. All behavior in animals depends on cells talking to each other via specific connections, sending out long processes and forming synapses with each other. Understanding the pattern of those connections is one way of understanding animal behavior. Using large scale electron microscopy to reconstruct neural circuits allows you to see every cell and synapse in a circuit and find how they’re wired to one another.
