Near-monolayer sectioning of live CNS tissue

The in-situ study of sections of living tissue maintained in-vitro is a powerful method to elucidate many aspects of cellular and network function in the CNS, both in acute slice and long-term culture (organotypic) preparations.

Recently, there has been an increased demand for technologies that enhance optical resolution at the synaptic/cellular level in order to better identify particular cell types or examine the properties of distinct spatial regions within individual cells.
