The nervous system is a tightly regulated, highly complex network. Besides gaining knowledge of the single neuronal cell, the understanding of the network as a whole is of major importance to understand how billions of neurons perform their task in the brain, how changes on molecular level are connected with pathogenesis and how neuronal networks are capable of learning and memory. With the help of microscopic techniques scientists are encountering many exciting questions, whose answers they are putting together like pieces of a puzzle.
