Research & Background

THE NEURON NANOMAP

In this project, which has started in April 2014, we generate a super-resolution image – a nanomap – of presynaptic nerve terminals, which describes the localization of ~100-200 synaptic proteins using STED microscopy. This long-term project consists of a number of shorter-term (6-18 months) sets of experiments, targeting the function and localization of specific protein sets.
