Optical Fibers Illuminate Brain Activity

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

A 3D-printed brain model equipped with optical fibers aims to help clinicians and patients visualize brain function activity, overcoming the shortcomings of four-dimensional neuroimaging techniques.

Medical imaging faces inherent limitations depending on its presentation mode. Computer models and virtual reality, while much more effective than two-dimensional depictions, are nonetheless images on a computer screen. Even with the use of stereoscopic techniques, the ability to visualize may depend on the use of a keyboard or mouse to interpret the model. In the case of 4D experimental medical data — such as electrophysiological, MRI and others — objects are displayed as computer animations or static pictures. While there are techniques that can make it easier to understand 4D...Read full article
