Bright brain cells
The brain cells shown in the images above may play a role in the formation of new memories, and therefore the knowledge gained through studying them could help to diagnose, monitor or treat Alzheimer’s disease.
BBSRC-funded researchers at the University of Leeds have been looking at these brain cells to help them understand the biological events that lead up to people developing Alzheimer’s disease.
