The transparent organism: EMBLEM and Carl Zeiss give labs a unique look at life

...sible to make three-dimensional films of the inner workings of living organisms at a much higher level of detail than ever before. One innovation of SPIM is the illumination of a sample from the side rather than along the traditional view of the microscope lens. This eliminates a problem that has plagued thr...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

...'ve learned to use radiotracers to image the inner workings of the living human brain, we can now track biochemical and physiological processes within plants using these powerful imaging tools," said Richard Ferrieri, who leads Brookhaven's role in the research. "This enables us to study the effects of extern...

Nano-Probes Allow an Inside Look at Cell Nuclei

... but biologists may soon use it to watch the inner workings of a living cell like never before. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed a way to sneak nano-sized probes inside cell nuclei where...

Cerebral navigation: How do nerve fibers know what direction to grow in?

...tery. "Very little has been known about the inner workings of the cell that govern axon guidance," says Michael Greenberg, PhD, Director of the Neurobiology Program at Children's and senior author on both studies. "These studies begin to give insight into how the various steps of axon guidance are controlled...

High fidelity keeps human DNA assembly line humming

...niversity have made a major discovery on the inner workings of genetic coding, mapping out mechanisms of one of life's most elemental functions: RNA synthesis. Their work has crucial implications for how a normal cell forms a tumor and how a virus runs amok. The work is published in the May 13 edition of the...

Montreal researchers probe the genetic basis of memory

... New York University sheds light on the mysterious workings of the hippocampus, a region of the brain responsible for learning and memory. "Not all new information we acquire is stored as long-term memory," says Dr. Costa-Mattioli, a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Sonenberg, who spearheaded th...

Bees, Brains and Addiction
