New X-ray method for understanding brain disorders better
12 May 2011
Researchers from NBI have developed a new method for making detailed X-ray images of brain cells. The method can map the myelin sheaths of nerve cells, which are important for conditions such as multiple sclerosis...
Dynamic systems in living cells break the rules
25 January 2011
There is considerable interest in understanding transport and information pathways in living cells. It is crucial for both the transport of, for example, medicine into cells, the regulation of cell life processes and their signalling...
Controlled heating of gold nanoparticles
17 January 2011
Tiny gold particles are good for transferring heat and could be a promising tool for creating localized heating in, for example, a living cell. In new experiments, researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have measured...
