48-Hour Time-Lapse Video Showing Developing Neurons Wins Nikon’s Small World Competition
Dr. Alexandre Dumoulin has won first place in the Nikon Small World in Motion Video Competition with his 48-hour time-lapse video showing developing neurons connecting across the central nervous system in a chicken. This research sheds light on neurodevelopmental disorders like autism and schizophrenia. Dumoulin's work focuses on understanding how neurons develop in embryos, using innovative imaging techniques. The competition showcases the beauty of scientific research while offering insights into crucial medical advancements.
Dr. Alexandre Dumoulin joined Technology Networks' junior science editor Rhianna-Lily Smith for an exclusive interview to reveal more about their video.
