5/30/2017 Scientists Discover Glittery Diamonds Can Shine New Light on Understanding How the Brain Works

Hertz Fellow Jenny Schloss is pioneering a new process of using synthetic diamonds to detect the miniscule magnetic fields generated by neural signals, at high resolution, down to individual neurons. It has the potential to revolutionize methods of measuring neural activity across wide-ranging disciplines, including biophysics and pharmacology, and contribute to a better understanding of the development of neurons over time. One promising direction in medicine is with neurodegenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis, where neuroscientists could correlate real-time changes in the magnetic signals from patients’ neurons with the progression of the disease.
