Using X-rays to Map the Brain

News   Oct 24, 2017 | Original Story by Ben Brumfield for Giorgia Tech

Powerful X-rays Enable Mesoscale Brain Imaging

A "navigational map view" of a section of a mouse brain. Like the map view of an Earth imaging program, this image of a brain section takes cues from actual imaging performed with highest-energy X-rays at a synchrotron and turns them into a graphic depiction. The imaging concentrates on a mesoscale of the brain analogous to the map view of Google Earth. The vasculature is in red, brain cell bodies in blue.



How Do Enteroviruses Infect?


Enteroviruses are one of the most common human pathogens but the physiological events leading to successful enterovirus infection are still poorly understood. But new light has been shed on the role of albumin and ions in host cell vesicles that promote genome release and efficient infection.


Ancient "Invisible Ink" Revealed by Multiple Methods


Scientists studied a small piece of papyrus that was excavated on the island of Elephantine on the River Nile a little over 100 years ago, using several methods including non-destructive techniques to investigate its contents.


Decoding Touch to Understand Autism


The inability to tolerate light touch is a telltale feature of autism and one of the disorder’s many perplexing symptoms. Now, a new study led has not only identified the molecular aberrations that give rise to heightened touch sensitivity in autism spectrum disorders but also points to a possible treatment for the condition.
