Developments in neuronal cell culture

Nature. 1988 Nov 10;336(6195):185-6. doi: 10.1038/336185a0.


The ability to grow neurons in culture has made possible great strides in the field of neuroscience. Advances in optical microscopy, together with techniques involving the retroviral transformation of neuronal precursors and cell fusion, will pave the way for further developments.
