A Stanford Bio-X team of scientists invented tools for watching mice brain nerves send signals in real time. The technique will make it easier to study brain functions and help develop therapies for brain diseases.  Scientists have created new tools that let researchers read brain activity by observing glowing trails of light spreading between connected nerves. Two Stanford scientists have worked together to create tools for observing nerves in living animals that signal between themselves in real time. Observing the glowing trails of light spreading between...more »
