Research Highlights using Microscopy LEDs

During larval development in Drosophila, researchers investigated synaptic growth and connectivity in the nociceptive network. They found that the connectivity between primary nociceptors and downstream neurons scales with the animal’s size. The study identified the Ste20-like kinase Tao as a negative regulator of synaptic growth, crucial for maintaining circuit specificity and functional output of the neuronal network during animal growth.

In Parkinson’s disease, α-synuclein overexpression (ASOX) induces toxic aggregates in vulnerable neurons. While ASOX causes hyperactivity in substantia nigra dopamine neurons, using wide-field somatic calcium imaging, researchers found that DMV neurons maintain normal firing rates through a homeostatic response involving reduced oxidative stress and downregulation of calcium channels.
