Guidance of neuronal extensions is a complex process essential for linking neurons into complex functional networks underlying the workings of the neural system. Decades of research have suggested the ability of neuronal growth cones to integrate multiple types of cues during the extension process, but also have raised numerous still unanswered questions(More)
Neurotransmitter release is the key factor of chemical messaging in the brain. Fast, sensitive and in situ detection of single cell neurotransmitter release is essential for the investigation of synaptic transmission under physiological or pathophysiological conditions. Although various techniques have been developed for detecting neurotransmitter release(More)

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignant tumors worldwide and is almost uniformly fatal. Current methods of detection include ultrasound examination and imaging by CT scan or MRI; however, these techniques are problematic in terms of sensitivity and specificity, and the detection of early tumors (<1 cm diameter) has proven elusive.(More)
