Myelin plays an essential role in the brain and nervous system by facilitating communication between neurons. Disease that disrupt myelin, such as multiple sclerosis and Guillain-Barré syndrome, cause functional disabilities. However, myelin biology is not well characterized, as tools to describe the organization of myelin in live animals have been lacking.

A new publication shows that endocannabinoid signalling improves vision in low light conditions.  This paper builds on the old anecdotal reports (from Jamaica and Morocco) that marijuana smoking helped fisherman to see better at dusk when they went out fishing. (PMID: 15182912 , PMID: 2062365 ).

This year we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Frontiers in Neurophotonics Summer School. We wish to thank our speakers, instructors and tutors for their great work. And of course, our students for their enthusiasm and dedication. We are looking forward to another 10 years, or more!

Congratulations to the students who made the top three presentations for the 2016 Frontiers in Neurophotonics Summer School mini-projects:

  • First prize winners: Irene Lecker and Valérie Van Steenbergen for their project: ‘STED imaging’
  • Second prize winners: David Lidenbach, Matilde Balbi, and Rochelin Dalangin for their project: ‘In vitro optogenetics with the optrode’
  • Third prize winners: Samantha Esteves and Samuel Burke for their project: ‘In vivo imaging in the tadpole brain with lightsheet microscopy’

The Canadian Neurophotonics Platform held two events in Toronto, in conjunction with the 2016 Canadian Neuroscience Meeting. The first event, a data blitz by student members of the Canadian Neurophotonics Platform, took place at the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning at SickKids Hopital on the evening of May 28th.
