A Safer Way to Image Molecules in the Brain

2016 05 Dec

Scientists from MIT have devised a new probe that enables them to image molecules in the brain without using any chemical or radioactive agents. The new probe consists of proteins and once it hits a particular target, the probe induces blood flow changes that can be seen by MRI or other imaging techniques. Their work is reported in the journal Nature... Read more
