Higher resolution will allow neuroscientists to more precisely localize and trace brain networks

An intense international effort to improve the resolution of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for studying the human brain has led to an ultra-high resolution 7 Tesla scanner.  It records up to 10 times more detail than current 7T scanners and over 50 times more detail than current 3T scanners, which most hospitals use. Source: Berkeley News
