  • Brain cell molecules shown in first-ever nanoscale 3D images of living cells

    The researchers generated this 3D image of a living mitochondria from the hippocampal region
    The researchers generated this 3D image of living mitochondria, left, in a human cell. Their new method enables disentangling of a mitochondrial network and optically “slicing” through an organelle, capturing multiple images that can be reconstructed in 3D. In this case, the rendering on the right reveals a small, round mitochondrion with a longer, larger one connect to each other.
