New imaging technique shows demyelination


Researchers have recorded how myelin degrades real-time in live mice using a new imaging technique called CARS. Using a technique called coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering microscopy, or CARS, scientists injected a compound called lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) into the myelin of a mouse. Then, using CARS, they observed an influx of calcium ions into the myelin. This influx is now believed to start the process of myelin degradation.
