Synaptic Imaging Assay
A powerful method for the research of cognition, learning and degenerative disease treatment
MD Biosciences offers a synaptic imaging assay for evaluating the effect of different treatments on synapse formation and identification. This assay allows the estimation of inhibitory/excitatory synapses ratio and synaptic strength, a powerful method advancing cognition, learning and degenerative disease research and treatment options.
- Synaptic Count
- Synaptic Strength
- Identification of synapse type (excitatory/inhibitory)
