Superabsorbent Polymer Blows Up Brain Samples To Give a Better View

Researchers have come up with an inexpensive technique for enlarging brain samples and studying them more closely.

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new method that expands brain tissue so that nanoscale structures can be seen with an ordinary light microscope. This new technique uses commonly available chemicals to help experts increase the size of tissue samples ...
