What happens in the brain as it loses consciousness: 3-D movie constructed

What happens in the brain as it loses consciousness: 3-D movie constructed

ScienceDaily (June 10, 2011) — For the first time researchers have been able to watch what happens to the brain as it loses consciousness. Using sophisticated imaging equipment they have constructed a 3-D movie of the brain as it changes while an anaesthetic drug takes effect.
