Hello, dear reader! Here at my blog you will find glimpses of joy, Stockholm, my numerous museum visits, funny and serious stuff worth noticing - all in journalese and sometimes in Swedish. With this also comes a pinch of analyses and reflections. This is a dynamic blog, meaning I sometimes go back in the archive and update the posts. If you are following my blog from a phone, click on "View web version" at the bottom of the page - it facilitates the reading. Enjoy! /Jana :)

In the lab (warning to sensitive readers)
Aula Medica could be the coolest building in town right now. That is where I met up Anne for lunch, and then we talked research at the neuroscience lab. I also got to see some sarstedt tubes with tiny mice fetuses in them. I was not prepared at all, so luckily my reaction was "oh, how cool" and not a scream.
Can you guess what this machine does? ... It slices mice brains. 30 mikrometers thick, for example, if that is what one desires to, or 40 mikrometers. In the end, this research should result in us being able to cure the humans from Parkinson's disease.
