Table 6: Some powerful technologies supporting work in neuroscience*.

(a) Advances in direct imaging of the living brain through    functional magnetic resonance imaging and related    techniques
(b) “Smart” pharmacological agents and dynamic imaging systems    such as single photon confocal microscopy.
(c) Mice with specific inserted (“knocked in”) or deleted    (“knocked out”) genes and other “gene-silencing” procedures,    providing animal models for human behavioural and    neurological deficits.
(d) Increased knowledge of the human genome.
