Ultrasound images brain activity in 4D

By 24th September 2019 October 24th, 2019 No Comments

Researchers at the Laboratory Physics for Medicine Paris (Inserm U1273/ESPCI Paris/PSL University/CNRS) have developed a new ultrasound imaging technique to record the vascular activity of the brain throughout its entire volume. The approach, which took nearly seven years to develop, could help advance the field of neuroscience research. It is detailed in Nature Methods.
