Recent advances in technology have dramatically increased the resolution with which we may examine many features of biological systems. Intracellular recording and tracer injection techniques allow one to study the function of individual neurons and later characterize the same cells morphologically. In situ hybridization techniques can give us information about messenger RNA levels in single cells. More established techniques such as immunocytochemistry and electron microscopy also provide… CONTINUE READING
