This animation movie explores the electrical and molecular mechanisms of a key structure in neuronal communication: the glutamatergic synapse.
The Choquet Lab combines neuroscience, physics and chemistry in order to unravel the role of molecular complexes in synaptic transmission. In this precision animation, we represented the complex dynamics of AMPA receptors at the level of a single synapse.
This review of synaptic physiology brings to the screen the graceful ballet enlivening a range of biological elements such as molecules, ions, cell membranes and electrical activity.
In each project, We are determined to be scientificaly accurate as per the latest discovery in any research field. Here great detail has been put into molecular interactions with devout respect for geometry, stoichiometry and kinetics.
