  • How to open the blood-brain-barrier with precision for safer drug delivery
    Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have developed a safer way to use focused ultrasound to temporarily open the blood-brain barrier* to allow for delivering vital drugs for treating†glioma brain tumors — an alternative to invasive incision or radiation. Focused ultrasound drug delivery to the brain uses “cavitation” — creating microbubbles — to temporarily open [...]

  • Mapping connections of single neurons using a holographic light beam
    Researchers at MIT and Paris Descartes University have developed a technique for precisely mapping connections of individual neurons for the first time by triggering them with holographic laser light. The technique is based on optogenetics (using light to stimulate or silence light-sensitive genetically modified protein molecules called “opsins” that are embedded in specific neurons). Current [...]
