Study enables imaging inside living neurons

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2005 – A new, easily manufactured microfluidic chamber will allow scientists to examine axons in living nerve cells and may lead to a better understanding of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and may be used to screen drugs to overcome spinal cord injuries, according to researchers in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering at the University of California, Irvine.
