The team is developing an ultra-high-resolution camera that can record the electrical impulses of brain cells at the level of some of their smallest structures, the cell-to-cell junctions called synapses. Imaging with this level of detail will be key to unraveling the mysteries of complex brain functions like memory formation while also paving the way to discovering new treatments for neurodegenerative disease.
