A new way to study the brain's invisible secrets



Neuroengineer Ed Boyden wants to know how the tiny biomolecules in our brains generate emotions| thoughts and feelings -- and he wants to find the molecular changes that lead to disorders like epilepsy and Alzheimer's. Rather than magnify these invisible structures with a microscope| he wondered: What if we physically enlarge them and make them easier to see? Learn how the same polymers used to make baby diapers swell could be a key to better understanding our brains.
