CLARITY Clears the Path to a See-Through Brain

See on Scoop.it - Psychology Update


A new approach to brain imaging called CLARITY could revolutionize how scientists study the brain. Researchers replaced a mouse brain’s opaque fats with a clear gel that supports neural tissue, resulting in a transparent organ with all its internal structures still intact and visible for study.

Teaching grandma UNIX seems easier. And even if your academic library is providing e-books, have you seen much choice in the available popular titles? It’s no wonder library users think: “Nice job getting all those articles in your catalog, but why can’t you figure out how to get them on my e-reader like the rest of the world can?”
