Mass Spectrometry in Neuroscience
Infographic Sep 26, 2019 | by Ruairi J Mackenzie, Science Writer for Technology Networks
For proteomics researchers, work is almost impossible without mass spectrometry (MS), an analysis technique that enables the study of the chemical makeup of samples in minute detail. Neuroscience, however, has largely got by without dipping its toe into the pool of analytical chemistry.
With the advent of faster, smarter MS tools, those days may be numbered, as MS-based techniques become an invaluable resource for studying the brain.

The burden of neurodegeneration is one that weighs heavily on the world’s aging population. To understand why conditions like Alzheimer’s disease are so difficult to treat, we must first understand how they affect the brain. In this infographic we take a deep dive into the degenerating brain, examining the changes that occur at every level.
