Magnetic resonance microscopy offers a unique window on deep tissue movements in optically opaque embryos. The aim of this project is to develop MR microscopy for single and multiple embryo, high throughput studies with sufficient spatiotemporal resolution to explore key developmental processes during neurulation and somitogenesis in established amphibian embryonic models.
