Virtual reality 3-D brain helps scientists understand migraine pain

Pretty cool if you ask me. 3D imaging of the brain during a migraine attack.

"The 3-D brain is a novel way to examine data from images taken during a patient's actual migraine attack, says DaSilva, who heads the Headache and Orofacial Pain Effort at the U-M School of Dentistry and the Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience Institute.
Different colors in the 3-D brain give clues about chemical processes happening during a patient's migraine attack using a PET scan, or positron emission tomography, a type of medical imaging.
"This high level of immersion (in 3-D) effectively places our investigators inside the actual patient's brain image," DaSilva said.
The 3-D research occurs in the U-M 3-D Lab, part of the U-M Library." Hologram-Like 3-D Brain Helps Researchers Decode Migraine Pain
