Though MRI scans are able to provide high-quality images of the brain, the technology is often unsuitable for newborn babies, as it requires the subject to remain completely still. The “TinyBrains” health consortium, run in conjunction with ICFO (The Institute of Photonic Sciences), is developing...Read full article
