Intracellular Staining in Neurobiology

The purpose of this book is to provide basic reference material to facilitate the further development and application of the intracellular staining techniques which originated with the introduction of Procion dye as a neurocellular stain. We had sev eral specific objectives in compiling these chapters. First, we recognized that both the techniques and results of intracellular staining have been derived from a variety of preparations and published in diverse journals. Consequently, we tried to make this information more readily available by incorporating several reviews by original authors. This should provide the reader with a knowledge of the kinds of neurobiological prob lems for which intracellular staining has already been employed. A second objective was to facilitate extension of these methods to a wider variety of problems. To this end there are chapters dealing with Procion dye as a marker for ultrastructural investi gations, the use of cobalt as a staining compound and the implementation of computer techniques for quantitative studies of neuronal relationships. As background for further extension of these methods this volume contains material on the history of the discovery of Procion dyes as intracellular stains, the chemistry of these dyes, and fundamentals of fluorescence microscopy. Our final specific objective was to present details of technical procedures that were not readily available in the literature.

Morphological Investigations of Single Neurons in Vitro

General Editor: A. D. Smith Morphological Investigations of Single Neurons in Vitro Edited by Gloria E. Meredith and Gordon W. Arbuthnott Morphological Investigations of Single Neurons in Vitro brings together a variety of applications for isolated preparations. Although in vitro preparations have long yielded valuable data in physiological and pharmacological studies, their anatomical power has only recently come to light. Presented in this volume is a collection of methods which show all the major advantages of the Golgi technique while lacking many of its pitfalls. All procedures involve the intracellular filling of individual neurons and in some, previous tracing experiments identify the cells, while others select the neurons physiologically. The outlined methods are practical since ‘preselected’ neurons can be filled and analysed in bulk and the results are beautiful, as demonstrated by 8 pages of colour plates. Applications range from invertebrate ganglia to neurons in human autopsy tissue. The necessary equipment and materials are noted in most contributions and detailed instructions can be found in 24 different protocols grouped conveniently in the final chapter. This timely handbook should prove invaluable to all neuroscience workers whenever they seek to discover new details of neuronal morphology.

Correlative Microscopy in Biology: Instrumentation and Methods presents the detailed methodology of biological correlative microscopy, a technology that allows the acquisition of multiple data from single tissue block, cell, or section. The chapters in the book include detailed and complete instructions on the preparatory procedures. The book has 20 chapters that deal with various forms and systems of microscopy. Some of the forms and methods used in the book include light, scanning electron, fluorescence, scanning transmission electron, and ion microscopy, as well as combined light and electron and transmission electron microscope. Other methods and their applications are all discussed in detail in the book. This book will help students apply the methods without outside help as each methodology is presented in a step-by-step approach, including applications and techniques. Aside from students, the book will also be good reference for teachers, scientists, and researchers in the fields of biology, biochemistry, and medicine.

Plasticity in the Somatosensory System of Developing and Mature Mammals — The Effects of Injury to the Central and Peripheral Nervous System

Author: Peter J. Snow,Peter Wilson

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 3642757014

Rarely have the many mechanisms that might underlie neural plasticity been examined as explicitly as they are in this broad, lavishly illustrated treatment of plasticity in the somatosensory system. The reader is provided with state-of-the-art knowledge of connections at all levels of the somatosensory system. The authors examine the propensity for changes of connectivity in both the mature and developing mammal and make clear proposals regarding the mechanisms underlying these changes. Their functional significance to relevant psychophysical and neurological observations is also discussed.

Denis Noble Nearly a decade after completion of the first draft of the entire Human Genome sequence we are in a better position to assess the nature and the consequences of that heroic achievement, which can be seen as the culmination of the molecular biological revolution of the second half of the twentieth century. The achievement itself was celebrated at the highest levels (President and Prime Minister) on both sides of the Atlantic, and rightly so. DNA sequencing has become sufficiently c- mon now, even to the extent of being used in law courts, that it is easy to forget how technically difficult it was and how cleverly the sequencing teams solved those problems in the exciting race to finish by the turn of the century [1, 2]. The fanfares were misplaced, however, in an important respect. The metaphors used to describe the project and its biological significance gave the impression to the public at large, and to many scientists themselves, that this sequence would reveal the secrets of life. DNA had already been likened to a computer program [3]. The “genetic program” for life was therefore to be found in those sequences: A kind of map that had simply to be unfolded during development. The even more colo- ful “book of life” metaphor gave the promise that reading that book would lead to a veritable outpouring of new cures for diseases, hundreds of new drug targets, and a brave new world of medicine.

Chemical markers have brought important new dimensions to the studies of the brain. As a result of this development, the chemical anatomy of the neurons system is being explored in great detail. This new functional neuroanatomy has demonstrated new organizations of perikaryal groupings of neurons and pathways from these cells which often follow unexpected courses. The field of chemical identification has recently been improved by methods reported in this volume, e.g. serotonin locatization and direct labelling of cholinergic neurons. The new techniques provide a ''new pair of glasses'' for everyone working in this field. This volume will be of great interest for researchers in neuropharmacology, neuroanatomy, immunochemistry, neuroendocrinology, neuroscience and cell biology.
