Work on putting together a "map" of brain cells

APA/dpa © APA/dpa

The new technology, which was combined and used for the first time in the world by the Medical University of Vienna and Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, enables every cell to be identified without any prior knowledge and to precisely list their components. At the same time, their activity and functions in the individual areas of the brain can be displayed.

“This will enable us to compile a representative catalogue of mRNA molecules in the neurons and we can use this, for example, to differentiate various neuronal subtypes and to compare healthy and diseased cells or young neurons with old ones. This technology is a revolutionary breakthrough, because it enables us to record molecular determinants of the entire neuronal identity," said Tibor Harkany, Head of the Department of Molecular Neurosciences at the Medical University of Vienna.

For example, initial study findings included the discovery of five subtypes of neurons that have previously been impossible to research because of their diverse nature.

Austria as a Trailblazer for the Circular Economy

For years the idea of the circular economy embodies the vision of an economy with controllable resource consumption. Pioneer work was carried out, for example, by the European Union with its “Circular Economy Package”. This creates the foundation for enabling (secondary) raw materials to remain in the economic cycle as long and efficiently as possible. This can be done if attention is paid to economical raw material use, durability and repairability and reusability at the beginning of the value chain, and that the materials can be optimally collected, sorted and recycled after their use.
