Electrophysiological Recordings of Evoked End-Plate Potential on Murine Neuro-muscular Synapse Preparations
Authors:  Giulia Zanetti, Samuele Negro, Aram Megighian and Marco Pirazzini, date: 04/20/2018, view: 898, Q&A: 0
Neuromuscular junction (NMJ) is the specialized chemical synapse that mediates the transmission of the electrical impulse running along motor neuron axons to skeletal muscle fibers. NMJ is the best characterized chemical synapse and its study along ...

Preparation of Teased Nerve Fibers from Rat Sciatic Nerve
Authors:  Jinkun Wen, Lixia Li, Dandan Tan and Jiasong Guo, date: 10/05/2017, view: 2101, Q&A: 0
Compared to tissue sectioning techniques, the technique of teasing single nerve fibers provides a better way to understand the structures of myelin sheaths and axons of the peripheral myelinated nerves. This protocol describes a method for ...
