      The brain up close: Radical microscope reveals nerve synapses firing in breakthrough that could shed light on Alzheimer's and depression
      • The closest image yet of working nerve synapses has been captured
      • Until now, close-up views of neuron synapses require the cells to be dead
      • But the researchers built a custom-built microscope with a sensitive camera to analyze living, working neurons up close
      • Studying synapses could help researchers undertsand how diseases such as depression and Alzheimer's affect the brain
