Jason Mandell, graduate student in bioengineering, demonstrates how the brain structures of mice are measured. While he points to an image on a laptop screen, Mandell's right hand touches the spot where mice are held in a metal tube that is placed inside the imaging center's most powerful MRI machine. Recent research has studied mice for effects of diabetes, Down syndrome and Alzheimer's disease. Results from a mouse model can inform research on treatments for humans.
