Nanotechnology's strong multidisciplinary roots documented in new study

Research reported in the September issue of the journal Nature Nanotechnology finds that nanoscience and nanotechnology indeed are highly multidisciplinary - but not much more so than other modern disciplines such as medicine or electrical engineering that also draw on multiple areas of science and technology.

Two-photon microscopy reveals function of neglected structure in neurons

Fifty years after it was originally discovered, scientists at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research have elucidated the function of a microscopic network of tubules found in neurons. This structure modulates the strength of connections between two neurons, thereby contributing to our ability to learn and to adapt to new situations.
