Neuroscientists are creating a connectivity map of the brain to understand where neurons project and which neurons they’re talking to. But, just as it would be hard to find your way in a strange city without street signs, it’s difficult for scientists to map the brain when they can’t tell one neuron apart from its neighbors. This video from Vania Cao shows how scientists developed the “brainbow” technique to differentiate neurons by color, and it took third place in the 2014 Brain Awareness Video Contest.
