SEPTEMBER 13th 2019 - COMMENT
Summer is coming to a close in the UK. The long winter nights will soon be upon us. But one thing is certain, the hobby of Microscopy can provide an interesting distraction and joy in all seasons. Winter is a good time to sit by the warmth of a fire, and possibly have a go at making your own slides. Some simple methods are suitable for a wide range of subjects and this one by the late WALTER  DIONI is a good one to start with.

Microscopes last for decades. Why purchase a new one, when a good second hand one works just as well but it's a lot cheaper?

Atomic Structure of Tooth Enamel

To get a better understanding of how this occurs at the atomic scale, materials engineers worked with dentists and bioengineers to map the exact composition and structure of tooth enamel at the atomic scale. The University of Sydney researchers, Prof. Julie Cairney and Dr Alex La Fontaine have pinpointed some of the nanoscale elements that govern the behaviour of our teeth.  

Using atom probe tomography in Microscopy Australia at the University of Sydney, their work produced the first-ever three-dimensional maps of human tooth enamel showing the exact positions of atoms critical in the decay process. Below shows

Scientists Built a New Microscope to Watch Cells, and the Footage Is Breathtaking

Betzig and his colleagues obtain the most candid, au naturel footage of living cells ever taken. By combining two high-tech imaging processes, the team captured unbelievably clear, 3D footage of individual cells going about their microscopic business inside living tissues. The team primarily tested their new microscopy technique by tracking cells inside embryonic zebrafish, but also turned their lenses to nematodes, leaves and organoids derived from human stem cells — and you can see it all now. Watch the video!

Seeing inside the brain
Using a new microscopy technique researchers simultaneously recorded from the cortex (green) and hippocampus (blue) of a mouse brain. Bright areas correlate with cell activity.

In order to understand the brain, scientists must be able to see the brain—cell by cell, and moment by moment. However, because brains comprise billions of microscopic moving parts, faithfully recording their activity comes with many challenges. In dense mammalian brains, for example, it is difficult to track rapid cellular changes across multiple brain structures—particularly when those structures are located deep within the brain.
