Two video clips made by Karl Deisseroth and Kwanghun Chung of Stanford University.
The first shows shows a flythrough of an intact mouse brain using a fluorescent imaging technique on a complete brain that previously could only be performed on a brain sectioned into thin slices.
The second shows a 3D view of a mouse brain's memory hub, or hippocampus, comprised of different types of cells: projecting neurons (green), connecting interneurons (red), and layers of support cells, or glia (blue). Existing methods require the brain tissue to be thinly sliced, compromising the ability to analyze intact components in relation to each other.
