In this collection of videos, scientists from the Betzig lab combine ultrathin light sheets based on 2D optical lattices and single molecule point illumination for imaging of nanoscale topography (PAINT) microscopy.
The Svoboda Lab’s Nicholas Sofroniew spoke to BBC News about the tactile virtual reality system for mice he and colleagues created at Janelia. This research is helping scientists understand how mice learn and form memories, and may eventually help us understand how our own brains work.
This video shows how Group Leader Kristin Branson clustered the fly brain into small regions to analyze which parts are involved in different behaviors.
In this video, each trace represents neural activity across the brain during one presentation of a moving stimulus, and different colors indicate various directions of motion. By watching the movie, one can see how neural activity evolves over time.
This video shows a simulation of a model describing how neural circuits may store information for short-term memory.
Fernando Amat, Philipp Keller, and William Lemon were awarded the prize in the 2014 Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition for their video that captures the early development of a fruit fly embryo.
Studying fruit fly larvae, Janelia scientists have mapped the entire neural circuit involved in combining vibration and pain sensations used in triggering an escape behavior.
Janelia group leader Albert Lee and his team are studying how neurons respond to new places. In a new study, they examined neuronal activity in rats as they explored an unusually large maze for the first time.
