Resolving spatial biology in neuroscience

In this episode of Talking Techniques by Biotechniques, we explore the realm of spatial biology, with a particular focus on the techniques involved in this approach to biological exploration, and the exciting insights gleaned from these techniques that have led to this approach being labeled Natures Method of the year 2020!

Stefano Pupe, Postdoctoral Researcher at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (Bonn, Germany), takes us through this field, revealing – amongst other fascinating insights – the neuroscience studies that can now be conducted on live mice to monitor their neurological cell expression profiles as they perform specific behaviors. We also discuss the potential immortality complexes that could be driving a large amount of investment into the field and highlight some of the challenges to watch out for when conducting spatial biology studies.
