Neurobiology at Work

This week's Images from Around the Lab were submitted from a neurobiology lab at the National Institutes of Health.

Scientists manipulate a frog oocyte (read: really big cell) using a technique called patch clamp recording. With this quad patch clamp, scientists can inject currents of different concentrations and voltages across a cell membrane.

Images of a cell after it has been injected with a tracer.

We want to see images from your workspace too! Email hbenson at to share your photos in New Voices Images from Around the Lab.
