Nerve Cell Actions Made Optically Visible In Mice

ScienceDaily (Oct. 7, 2008) — Thought processes made visible: An international team of scientists headed by Mazahir Hasan of the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg has succeeded in optically detecting individual action potentials in the brains of living animals. The scientists introduced fluorescent indicator proteins into the brain cells of mice via viral gene vectors: the illumination of the fluorescent proteins indicates both when and which neurons are communicating with each other.

It's kind of like watching the blinking lights on an old fashioned computer.
