Structures of neural tissue at nanometer resolution


Harvard University’s Jeff Lichtman and colleagues use automated EM technologies to probe the structures of neural tissue at nanometer resolution. Please watch the video above and read the paper (…) to check out this amazing saturated reconstruction of a sub-volume of mouse neocortex with cellular and subcellular components. To fully enjoy the 3D graphics, we suggest you choose the highest quality video option from the setting icon in the lower right corner of the video.
