Membrane lipid rafts (i.e., cholesterol/sphingolipids domains) exhibit functional roles in both healthy and pathological states of the nervous system. However, due to their highly dynamic nature, it remains a challenge to characterize the fundamental aspects of lipid rafts that are important for specific neuronal processes. An experimental approach is presented here that allows for the interfacing of living neurons with an experimentally accessible model membrane where lipid order in cellular… CONTINUE READING
