Missed Connections: The Structural and Biochemical Markers of Neurodegeneration

Learn about how scientists use the presence of biomarker molecules, released when cellular or tissue integrity has been compromised, to detect and gauge neurological injury with this poster from The Scientist and Quanterix!

Highly specialized, neurons receive, propagate, and transmit electrical and chemical signals to control motor actions, regulate body functions, and interpret and respond to external stimuli. The ability to perceive and interact with the world hinges on neuronal function—and naturally, physical damage to neurons is a core cause of many neurological pathologies. Understanding the extent of this damage is the first step to repairing the damage that has been wrought.
