Cell Story Challenge Winners

We are excited to announce the winners of our first Cell Story Challenge. Lill Eva Johansen BCRM, UMC Utrecht, Utrecht University, The Netherlands Neural Circuit Development and Disease Lab – Dr. Jeroen Pasterkamp Research Goal: Interrogating human iPSC-derived motor neurons about nerve conduction in an in vitro model of multifocal motor neuropathy Background and motivation:Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN) is a motor neuron-specific autoimmune neuropathy with the electrophysiological hallmark of conduction block, causing asymmetrical weakness in distal parts of limbs which…

MxW Monthly Must-Reads (01.2019)

Welcome to the first MxW Monthly Must-Reads (MMM) of 2019! This month’s selection of articles focuses on retina research. The retina, an extension of the brain and the first stage of visual input processing, extracts information about various features of visual stimuli, including size, contrast, colour, orientation and motion direction. With a diversity of neural subtypes both on the levels of local processing and downstream output via retinal ganglion cells, the retina is an amazing model for studying functional sub-circuits…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (June 2018)

June brings us to the fourth edition of our blog series, the MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads. This month’s selection of articles will focus on induced pluripotent stem cells or iPSCs. This technology, developed by researchers at Kyoto University lead by Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, allows adult cells to be genetically ‘reprogrammed’ to a stem cell-like state. Thus, it is possible to derive specific cell types from iPSCs, such as neurons and cardiomyocytes, providing a means to study human cells in-vitro. Increasingly, iPSCs are being used…

MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads (May 2018)

Time goes by fast, and it is already time for the May edition of MaxWell Monthly Must-Reads. This month’s blog series will focus on a well-studied region of the brain, the Hippocampus. We picked this topic for this month as the hippocampus is an interesting model system for studying mechanisms involved in memory storage. MaxOne provides a high-resolution recording and stimulation platform for investigating single cells and networks in hippocampal slices and cell cultures. This month’s MMM includes a methods article utilizing our…
