Spinal Neuron Connections Probed with Fluorescence Microscopy

Using two-photon fluorescence microscopy, researchers have gained new insight into how the spinal cord mediates commands from the brain to get the body moving.

The findings could help identify ways to repair damaged neural connections in patients with spinal cord injuries or neurodegenerative diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
