Dr Dimitar Dimitrov making a giant synapse preparation
A culture preparation starts with the collection of specific parts of mice brain. The tissues are broken down into in single cells. These cells are put in a dish with the appropriate culture medium. After 2-3 weeks, the cells form a giant synapse. This culture can then be used for scientific experiments.
