New pig brain maps facilitate human neuroscience discoveries

2

For nearly a decade, scientists have relied on an MRI-based map, or atlas, of the pig brain – developed using 4-week-old pigs – to understand where and how nutrients and other interventions affect the developing brain. Now, scientists have updated that atlas, increasing its resolution by a factor of four, and they have also added a new atlas for adolescent 12-week-old pigs.
