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.
