Thermoregulatory Tracing: Overview

As I stated in my previous blog, my project involves using a retroactive in situ hybridization (ISH) for the rat vesicular glutamate transporter (VGLUT2) to test the efficacy of the gold nanoprobes that are used in the lab for axonal tracing studies.  Ultimately this project is a stepping stone for future ISH studies in neurons, which will hopefully help to elucidate the thermoregulatory pathways we have been studying.
