New-Tissue-Expansion-Technique-Provides-High-resolution-imaging-at-a-Fraction-of-the-Cost

By expanding brain tissue twice, MIT scientists were able to obtain high-resolution images of neurons in the hippocampus. A group of scientists from MIT have developed a way to make extremely high-resolution images of tissue samples at a fraction of the cost of previous techniques. By expanding tissue before imaging […]

Researchers-Identify-Brain-Circuit-That-Drives-Pleasure-Inducing-Behavior

MIT neuroscientists identify the brain circuit that drives pleasure-inducing behavior in a brain region thought to be linked with fear. Scientists have long believed that the central amygdala, a structure located deep within the brain, is linked with fear and responses to unpleasant events. However, a team of MIT neuroscientists […]
