Mouse model for epilepsy, Alzheimer's gives window into working brain

A genetically engineered line of mice has been developed that is expected to open the door to new research on epilepsy, Alzheimer's and other diseases. The mice carry a protein marker, which changes in degree of fluorescence in response to different calcium levels. This will allow many cell types, including cells called astrocytes and microglia, to be studied in a new way.
