Online Registry Aims to Drive Brain Disease Research - NeuroscienceNews.com A new online project led by researchers at UC San Francisco promises to dramatically cut the time and cost of conducting clinical trials for brain diseases, while also helping scientists analyze and track the brain functions of thousands of volunteers over time.
See-through brain - This is absolutely remarkable. “Scientists have come up with a way to make whole brains transparent, so they can be labelled with molecular markers and imaged using a light microscope. The technique, called CLARITY, enabled its creators to produce the detailed 3D visualisations you see in this video. It works in mouse brains and human brains; here the team use it to look into the brain of a 7-year-old boy who had autism.”
Finding Keys to Glioblastoma Therapeutic Resistance - NeuroscienceNews.com - The study revealed that EGFR signaling is suppressed in a subset of glioblastomas.

Device Could Spot Seizures by Reading Brainwaves through the Ear A tiny, unobtrusive brain monitor could help track daily seizures. WHY IT MATTERS Longer-term EEG readings could give doctors a much clearer idea of what’s happening in the brain. Picking up signals: An earpiece with three electrodes records from within the hearing canal.Drs often use EEG as an inexpensive way to record electrical signals in the brain.
Decoding Sounds’ Source: Researchers Unravel Part of Mystery - A new study provides insight into how localized hearing works in the brain. The inferior colliculus can be seen in this image from Gray's Anatomy. NeuroscienceNews.com. #neuroscience #brain
