In the distance behind them are bright green trees and a building with many windows and a red brick roof.
With support from a Stanford Bio-X Seed Grant, Bio-X affiliated faculty members Zhenan Bao, Xiaoke Chen, Aida Habtezion, James Dunn, Bianxiao Cui, Sergiu Pasca, and Yi Cui have invented NeuroString - a soft, implantable probe that can monitor fluctuations in brain chemicals, like a fitness tracker for the brain!
