The 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell, and
William E. Moerner « for the development of superresolved fluorescence microscopy »
can be seen as a combined prize for single-molecule detection and superresolution
imaging. Neurons, arguably the most morphologically complex cell type, are the
subject of choice for this application, now generically called « nanoscopy. »
