New technique lets scientists better see, study interface where two cells touch

Cellular interactions that trigger the production of myelin are especially hard to pinpoint. That’s because the crucial point of contact between two types of cells — the connection between axons, along which nerve impulses travel, and glial cells, which support neurons — is essentially hidden. Now, in a new article, researchers explain a new method to more precisely capture how brain cells interact.
