Cornell scientists have developed a new technique for imaging a zebrafish’s brain at all stages of its development, which could have implications for the study of human brain disorders, including autism. See full Cornell Chronicle article →
Designed to appeal to all audiences “Science on Tap” aims to connect the Ithaca community with Cornell researchers in an authentic seminar setting. Chris Schaffer will be presenting “Unexpectedly stalled: The long path to uncovering the causes and consequences of brain blood flow disruptions in Alzheimer’s disease”.
Imaging Deeper and Faster: Watching the Brain in Action with Ultrafast Lasers
Brain research is a multi-disciplinary endeavor, and inspires the development of innovative measurement tools. By pushing the boundaries of imaging depth and speed, nonlinear optical microscopy enables large-scale, non-invasive monitoring of brain activity in live animals, and is poised to play a major role in understanding how brains work.
