Nanoparticles could help us understand the relationship between structure and function in the brain

The human brain is highly connected over a number of different length and time scales spanning communication between neurons to communication across distant brain regions. The study of how the structure of the brain is connected to its many functions is an emerging approach to understanding neurological and psychiatric disorders. This includes tracking changes associated […]
