Quantum Dots reveal minute details of brain chemistry for first time

Abstract:
French researchers have used a new imaging tool, the size of individual molecules, to reveal more clearly than ever before the workings of the human nervous system including processes that may eventually provide clues to treating common neurological disorders. In a study published in the October 17 issue of the journal Science, the researchers reported they used quantum dots developed and manufactured by Hayward-based Quantum Dot Corporation (QDC) to track the movements of individual glycine receptor molecules in the membranes of living cells. The results mark the first time researchers have been able to track single-molecule properties in living cells for extended periods within a single experiment.
