The research of Parastoo Hashemi, assistant professor of chemistry, on the current state of brain chemical analysis is the cover story in a recent professional journal, accompanied by a podcast.

In "Ultrafast Detection and Quantification of Brain Signaling Molecules with Carbon Fiber Microelectrodes," published in the Oct. 2 issue of Analytical Chemistry, Dr.Hashemi examines the use of carbon fiber microelectrodes (CFM) in neurochemical measurements, with an emphasis on the most recent findings and technological advances. The field is more critical than ever, she said, with the increasing number of diagnoses of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, which remain largely untreatable, and with a surge in reports of mood disorders and substance abuse.
