MIT’s New MRI Technique Reveals Hidden Light Deep in the Brain

Published in Scanners and Imaging.

A novel MRI technique developed at MIT allows for detailed imaging of bioluminescence deep within the brain, offering new insights into how brain cells develop and communicate with each other.

Scientists often label cells with proteins that glow, allowing them to track the growth of a tumor, or measure changes in gene expression that occur as cells differentiate.

While this technique works well in cells and some tissues of the body, it has been difficult to apply this technique to image structures deep within the brain, because the light scatters too much before it can be detected.
