Our understanding of prevalent brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease is constantly evolving, but when observing how such conditions affect synapses, researchers have had to rely on post-mortem observations. A Yale University team of scientists has developed and tested a technique that could revolutionize how we observe the progress of common brain disorders. In the long run, it could lend a hand in the development of treatments for everything from Alzheimer's to epilepsy.

With its mission recently extended for another two years, the agency has elected to improve the distant rover's ability to conduct science operations under its own steam. The upgrade is related to the Chemistry and Camera (ChemCam) instrument, allowing the rover to pick targets to fire its laser at without direction from mission scientists back home.
