A research team at the University of Minnesota has been able to create an imaging technique that allows them, in real time, to observe gene expression in the brain of live mice. This specialised imaging technique was crucial in explicating the way that long-term memories are formed. Researchers are of the view that this may be a breakthrough as it can lead to discovering the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. This experiment will also be critical in understanding other neurological diseases. Observing gene expression was a near to impossible phenomenon. However, scientists have been successful in doing so and are hopeful that this research will drive outstanding outcomes.
