Toward embryo brain activity tracking

FacebooktwitterlinkedinFacebooktwitterlinkedin

Hari Shroff and NBIB colleagues have developed open-source 3D software that might lead to the ability to track a human embryo’s brain activity and development.

To date, the technology has only been tested on worms and will be part of a 4D neurodevelopmental “worm atlas” that attempts to catalogue the formation of a worm’s nervous system.

Shroff believes that  it will enable the understanding of fundamental mechanisms by which human  nervous systems assemble. He expects that the concepts, such combining neuronal data from multiple embryos, can be applied to additional model organisms.
