Cfos Neural Activity · Science Animation
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This animation shows how electrical impulses generated by neurons (action potentials) lead to the expression of C-fos by the cell nucleus. C-fos is thus considered an immediate early gene product of recent neural activity. It is widely used in neuroscience as a post-hoc readout of recently active neurons. To see how C-fos is detected experimentally for visualization and quantification please watch the companion video C-fos Immunolabeling.

Cocaine Addiction Effects of the Brain: Binge and Craving
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

Cocaine afflicts many individuals and is potently addictive. Originally hailed as a wonder-drug in the late 19th century, cocaine is now considered an illegal substance. Cocaine’s addictive properties can be attributed to changes in the dopamine reward pathway of the Ventral Tegmental Area and Substantia Nigra, Prefrontal Cortex, Dorsal Striatum, Nucleus Accumbens, Amygdala, Globus Pallidus, and Hippocampus. This drug affects the brain in two processes: binge and crave. The binge process highlights cocaine’s ability to block dopamine reuptake from the synapse resulting in hyperstimulation of the postsynaptic neuron in the dopamine reward pathway. The crave process promotes drug-seeking behavior through conditional and contextual cues. Understanding the effects of cocaine in the brain may grant insight in creating future medication and therapies to treat individuals addicted to this drug.

Crispr-Cas 9 · Science Animation
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

Precise modification of faulty genes for repair has been one of the most important goals in medicine. It is now finally within the realm of possibility thanks to the gene editing tool CRISPR. This microbial adaptive immune system can copy and cut specific DNA sequences. This animation provides a visual introduction of this revolutionary genetic tool.

Synaptic Transmission · Science Animation
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

Neurons communicate with each other and relay information to the brain through synapse. Influx of calcium through ion channels acts as a trigger for starting the neurotransmission cascade, which upon reaching action potential, leads to the release of neurotransmitters, propagating the signal from the pre-synaptic membrane to the post-synaptic membrane.
