UCSD researchers image brain wiring as it forms

from the Making-connections dept.
According to a press release (30 November 2001), researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Divisions of Biology and Physical Sciences have succeeded in imaging the structural changes between neurons in the brain that many scientists believe take place when human brains store short-term and long-term memories. The images show brain cells forming temporary and permanent connections in response to various stimuli, and provide evidence for how nerve connections in the brain are changed temporarily and permanently by our experiences. Their research results were reported in the 30 November 2001 issue of Cell.
