Using a new fluorescent technique to visualize neuronal communication
et's watch the neurons speak to each other - short science articles and news

Scientists have developed a new way to record neurons actually speaking to each other in bright colours. This technique could help provide answers to long-awaited questions related to Alzheimer's disease, depression and schizophrenia. They have used this technique to visualize the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which affects, memory, mood and involved in various mental health problems. Being able to identify acetylcholine and other neurotransmitters in fluorescent colours, we could establish a baseline level of good brain health and then treat towards restoring the deranged systems as seen in neurological diseases.
