Neuroanatomy Electron Microscopy Core

Overview of Services

The BMRI is now home to the Neuroanatomy Electron Microscopy (EM) Core. "The Electron Microscopy & Histology Core" provides similar services as the "Neuroanatomy EM Core".  The difference is that the Neuroanatomy EM Core focuses on brain and provides training to people (especially students and post-docs) in laboratory procedures. For more information about the entire list of core facilities offered at WCMC, please click here:




The goal of the Core is to provide training and services in the processing of brain tissue for light and electron microscopic immunocytochemistry.  Key aspects of the core include:  1) one-on-one training classes; 2) assistance with brain fixation and histology; 3) assistance with quantitative light microscopic immunocytochemistry on brain tissue; 4) assistance with quantitative single and dual labeling electron microscopic immunocytochemistry; 5) assistance with collection, analysis and interpretation of these preparations; and 6) assistance with preparing collected data for publication and meeting presentations. 


Mission of the core

This Core primarily oversees experiments on brain tissue that utilize pre-embedding light and electron microscopic immunocytochemical methods.
