New Microscope That Can Visualize Biological Imaging

Scientists have established the first microscope platform that can perform super-resolution spatial and temporal imaging, capturing unprecedented views inside living cells. Super-resolution microscopy is a technique that can "see" beyond the diffraction of light, providing unprecedented views of cells and their interior structures and organelles. But Super-resolution microscopy comes with a big limitation: it only offers spatial resolution.

Drugs Used To Treat Pain And Epilepsy

A new research from The Australian National University (ANU) has penetrated down to the molecular level to find similarities across six pharmaceutical drugs used in pain relief, dentist anaesthetic, and treatment of epilepsy, in a bid to find a way to reduce unwanted side-effects. One in five Australians experience chronic pain, and 250,000 Australians live with epilepsy, 40 per cent of which are children.
