Technologies enable 3D imaging of whole human brain hemispheres at subcellular resolution

Medical Xpress: Radiology

Observing anything and everything within the human brain, no matter how large or small while it is fully intact, has been an out-of-reach dream of neuroscience for decades, but in a new study in Science, an MIT-based team describes a technology pipeline that enabled them to finely process, richly label and sharply image full hemispheres of the brains of two donors—one with Alzheimer's and one without—at high resolution and speed.
