Biological application of focus ion beam-scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM) to the imaging of cartilaginous fibrils and osteoblastic cytoplasmic processes

Conclusion Taken together, these data suggest that FIB-SEM imaging of serial bone sections may facilitate new insights on the ultrastructure of cartilage and bone tissues.

Normally, each month when new issues of journals are opened or scanned online, there can be an element of excitement together with an element of trepidation. The latter can stem from complicated tables concerning obscure genes that govern inflammatory pathways that interact with bacteria, tedious immunologic data, and metabolic novelties that boggle the mind. However, in this issue of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Overwater et  al1 have provided us with a breath of fresh air.

In the present study, Cu0.3Zn0.2Mg0.5Fe2O4 nanoparticles are synthesized through thermal-treatment method followed by calcination at 650 °C. The calcined nanoparticles are characterized through X-ray diffraction (XRD), field-emission scanning electro...

The two-dimensional (2D) nanoclay kaolinite as an effective hemostatic has been developed for early intervention to prevent blood loss. However, the interfacial interactions between kaolinite and blood cells in hemostasis, and the effects of the stacking structure or particle size of kaolinite on bleeding cont...

ConclusionsOur collective results demonstrate the potential benefits of PSF-EPI for concurrent TMS-fMRI when coil-related artifacts are a concern. The ability to collect high quality resting state fMRI data in the same session as the concurrent TMS-fMRI experiment offers a unique opportunity to interrogate network architecture in the human brain.
