Radical Eradication: Piercing the Darkness of the Neuronal Network
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Vancouver, BC
School:Kitsilano Secondary
Abstract:The purpose of the project was to determine if antioxidants would neutralize free radicals in living tadpole neurons. A novel method was developed to directly measure free radical concentration in vivo. Results will improve the two-photon microscopy process and help to understand disease treatments because free radicals are associated with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and many forms of cancer.
