Neurotransmission Vs Neuromodulation
Infographic Mar 28, 2018 | by Adam Tozer PhD
Signalling molecules enable fast and maintained communication between brain cells and are essential for brain function.
The diverse roles and actions of these molecules as neurotransmitters and neuromodulators have been the subject of years of research.
This infographic details The classic neurotransmitters and neuromodulators of the brain, their molecular structures and their roles in brain cell communication.
For proteomics researchers, work is almost impossible without mass spectrometry (MS). 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.READ MORE
Cryopreservation, the use of very low temperatures and cryoprotectants to preserve structurally intact cells and tissues, is essential to many areas of research and medicine. Find out why cryopreservation is used, how cryoprotectants reduce cell shrinkage, and learn about the therapies dependent on successful cryopreservation.READ MORE
