Workshop of Confocal Microscopy

The practical part of the workshop will include:

• Visualization, analysis and reconstruction of 3D images with Auto Quant and Imaris softwares.
• Studies of intracellular processes using Spinning Disc Microscope.
• Recording of fast processes in cells using resonance scanner (Leica TCS SP5).
• Cells migration and adhesion study – DIC contrast and Interference Reflection Microscopy.
• Technics of the calcium signaling measurement – fluorescence microscopy.

Experiments will be conducted on tissue cells, ciliates and plant cells. Lecturers will present the results of studies concerning neuronal plasticity, cells ageing and proliferation, intracellular transport and the tissue structure of mammalian organs.
