Nanoparticles Pinpoint Brain Activity

Nanotechweb reports on nanoparticles pinpointing brain activity.

Scientists could be a step closer to unraveling the mysteries of human memory thanks to a nanoparticle-based imaging technique developed at Bordeaux University. The team is observing how biomolecules change position within a cultured rat synapse, the junction between nerve cells, by labeling the biomolecules with tiny gold particles.

This is essentially another step in reverse engineering our brains, which is important because…

Wait a minute… I dedicated a whole FAQ to why it’s important to reverse engineer the brain.

Read that instead.
