Neuroscience research advances forward each time a new tool is created. Hodgkin and Huxley ushered in the age of neurocomputation, before most labs had computers, by providing a useful electrochemical model of voltage changes across the plasma membrane. Magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography have contributed greatly to our understanding of how brain regions work in concert during specific tasks and may one day reveal our innermost feelings in a way that would astound Freud. Additionally, Roger Tsien's group has quite literally shed new light on protein dynamics in neurons with their rainbow of fluorescent proteins.... matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometer (Applied Biosystems, Norwalk, CT), and purified by reversed-phase high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) using an Agilent 1200 series HPLC anbsp;...
