<New Technique Scans Electrical 'Brainscape'
DURHAM, N.C. -- Using hairlike microelectrodes and computer analysis, 
neurobiologists at Duke University Medical Center have demonstrated that 
they can see the detailed instant-to-instant electrical "brainscape" of 
neural activity across a living brain.
In their study on rats, they demonstrated that they could distinguish in 
unprecedented detail the patterns of brain activity -- including fleeting 
changes in communication among brain structures -- in awake animals>
