A Study Reveals New Information About Our Brains

A new study in biology shows us more about our brains and the secrets within. The study showed that we can activate certain nerve cells and make animals and people do things. When experimenting, scientists were able to activate the cells in a mouse’s orbitofrontal cortex, which is a stretch of tissue that involves eating and social behavior. They were able to make the mice drink more water or to stop drinking and leave. They were able to do this through two newer studies in microbiology. One of the studies is the lattice light sheet microscope which can peer deep into brain cells. They also used expansion microscopy, which is where a scientist uses a gel to expand the brain cells to make them more visible under a microscope. This is a huge step in discovering the brain’s many secrets!(edited)
