Quick bits

Alright the real last TMS item. Neuralieve unit pictured below. Apparently 10 companies are now making home TMS system. More info here.

Hitachi is working on an optical topography unit, which detects local changes to cerebral blood flow. Kind of like an optical MRI. *ducks as MRI researcher throw rotten produce* Basically, the reflection and refraction of light shined through the scalp is altered by the change in need for oxygen and glucose of an active brain. It has to be cool - look at how old school this photo is!
