Neural circuits are groups of interconnected neurons which carry out specific functions when activated. Imaging these neural circuits allows researches to further elucidate their mechanisms and functions. Follow this feed to stay up to date on brain imaging of neural circuits.
Computed axial tomography (CT or CAT) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses X-rays to take slices of the particular region of interest. This data is sent to a computer where a 2D image is generated. CT of the brain can be helpful in understanding pathological processes of some diseases. Discover the latest research of CT of the brain here.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to provide images of the area of interest. Cranial ultrasound is most often used in babies to visualize their fontaneles. Discover the latest research on cranial ultrasounds here.
Investigating human cellular proteins through a combination of highly multiplexed imaging and proteomic analyses can help characterize all human cells at the proteomic level. Discover the latest research on deep visual proteomics here.
