Neuroimaging: In vivo imaging of the diseased nervous system

  title={Neuroimaging: In vivo imaging of the diseased nervous system},
  author={Thomas Misgeld and Martin Kerschensteiner},
  journal={Nature Reviews Neuroscience},
In vivo microscopy is an exciting tool for neurological research because it can reveal how single cells respond to damage of the nervous system. This helps us to understand how diseases unfold and how therapies work. Here, we review the optical imaging techniques used to visualize the different parts of the nervous system, and how they have provided fresh insights into the aetiology and therapeutics of neurological diseases. We focus our discussion on five areas of neuropathology (trauma… CONTINUE READING
