You can now see an image of the brain fifty times faster. 

Researchers have developed a new method, Photoacoustic Microscopy, to generate a high-speed image of brain oxygenation levels, allowing for better tools to research disease development. http://bit.ly/1xycmDo
These images show fast functional photoacoustic microscopy of the mouse brain. Figure (d) shows a representative x-y projected brain vasculature image through an intact skull. Figure (e) shows a representative enhanced x-z projected brain vasculature image. Figure (f) shows photoacoustic ...

"What piece of advice do you have for students?"
"I would say consistently, the biggest, the most important advice I can give is not to be so afraid. This is a time in your life when you’re coming of age and so many things are uncertain. Its sort of designed that way, so you can learn, and grow into the person that you’ll eventually be when you’re my age. Especially now, there’s so much fear. There’s way more fear about uncertain outcomes than there used to be when I was an undergrad. I think that fear keeps students from exploring, following their passions, from being honest with one another sometimes, or honest with themselves, from making good decisions. You can’t make good decisions when you’re in a fear-based mindset; we’ve measured this. We know this in neuroscience. That would be the biggest advice: try to be become more aware of the ways in which you’re dominated by fear. Try to step out of it. The great thing about this institution is that there are so many resources to help you move from fear to action that is empowered and clearer."

“Participating in Engineers Without Borders had long been a dream of mine because it allowed me to help people and see the practical applications of the field I wanted to study.”

Students recently made a trip to Ethiopia to apply their knowledge by giving back to the local community, with the aim of solving the flood issues around the Mekelle School for the Blind. 
A group of six students and two mentors a part of Engineers Without Borders from Washington University in St. Louis boarded a plane bound for Ethiopia.
