Scientists Use Machine Learning to ‘See’ How the Brain Adapts to Different Environments

Visualizing connections between nerve cells in brains of mice is enabled by artificial intelligence

Johns Hopkins scientists have developed a method involving artificial intelligence to visualize and track changes in the strength of synapses — the connection points through which nerve cells in the brain communicate — in live animals. The technique, described in Nature Methods, should lead, the scientists say, to a better understanding of how such connections in human brains change with learning, aging, injury and disease.
