Roll the Bones

In this video from NPR's Science Friday, UT paleontologist Tim Rowe describes his non-invasive technique for looking inside the skulls of dinosaurs by creating hundreds of digital slices.

Digital morphology uses high-resolution X-ray computed tomography to create spectacular imagery and animations of biological specimens. With this technology scientists at the university can see what a dinosaur's brain looked like or examine the famous hominid "Lucy" without touching the fossil.
