1. News: ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan Announced as #MyNeuroVote Winner at Neuroscience 2015 

SelectScience® is delighted to announce ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan by ZEISS Microscopy as this year’s winner of #MyNeuroVote, held at the 2015 Society for Neuroscience annual conference in Chicago. This is the second year running that the ZEISS LSM 880 with Airyscan won #MyNeuroVote. Read more.


2. Videos: The Latest Product News from Neuroscience 2015

Our editors travelled to Neuroscience 2015 to get the latest product news direct from the manufacturers and their users. Discover the latest products for neuroscience research, and hear about the experiences of the scientists that are using them. See more.


3. Application Note: Detection of Human Tau Protein Aggregation

The tau protein stabilizes microstructures in the brain, supporting nutrient transport. Abnormal tau protein leads to collapse of these structures, and, subsequently, neurodegeneration, so measurement of tau aggregation could be an indicator of a patient's neurodegenerative state.

4. Products: New Superresolution Systems Presented at Neuroscience 2015

Nikon Instruments Inc., innovator of advanced optical instruments, introduced its latest cutting-edge imaging solutions at this year’s Neuroscience conference in Chicago. Attendees were granted a first-hand look at the latest multiphoton and superresolution systems. Find out more.


5. Application Note: Corning® PureCoat™ Amine Supports Cell Attachment and Differentiation of Neural Cells

Cultured neural cells are used in vitro as a method to study brain function and metabolism. These cells prefer vessels with coatings such as poly-d-lysine, poly-ornithine, and laminin. Many researchers self-coat vessels to enhance neural cell attachment, a time-consuming process which may result in lot-to-lot and plate-to-plate inconsistencies, often leading to experimental rework. This application note reports that Corning PureCoat amine supports both neural cell attachment and differentiation. Download method.


6. Products: Latest Microplate Innovations from BioTek at Neuroscience 2015

BioTek Instruments demonstrated its latest microplate innovations at the SfN’s 45th annual meeting. Featured products included BioTek’s award-winning, second generation Cytation™ 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Microplate Reader and the Epoch 2 Microplate Spectrophotometer. Find out more.


7. News: Scientists Solve Structure of Virus Linked to Diabetes, Infant Death, and Neurological Conditions 

An international group of scientists, from Diamond, the University of Oxford, The Pirbright Institute, The Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Linnaeus University in Sweden, have solved the atomic structure of the Ljungan virus, an infection of rodents that is also associated with a variety of dangerous diseases in humans, including diabetes, neurological disease, and sudden infant death. The identification of the structure could be an important step towards better understanding and treating the virus and augmenting our understanding of virus evolution as a whole. Read more.


8. Products: UVP Presents Innovative Life Science Workflows at Neuroscience 2015

UVP presented exciting new bioimaging systems, including the ChemiDoc-ItTS3 Imager, which is designed for high resolution image capture of chemiluminescent western blots, gels and more, and the iBox Scientia 900 In Vivo Imaging System for detection of fluorescent and bioluminescent markers in small animal. Find out more.


9. Application Note: 3D Tracking of Microglial Response to Neuroinflammation

In a healthy body, microglia regularly scavenge the central nervous system looking for plaques, damaged neurons, or infectious agents that need to be cleared. However, when activated by neuroinflammation they change structure and function. These activated cells have been observed in much higher levels at sites of neurodegeneration patients with neurodegenerative diseases, compared to healthy people. This application note describes the use of Imaris, from Bitplane AG, to track and image microglial responses to neuroinflammation in three dimensions. Download method.
