Untangling the brain – by Nature Video

July 22, 2012

visual cortical neurons

Our brains are a dense tangle of billions of nerve cells connected together at synapses. Knowing how everything links up is key to understanding how the brain works — but it’s a huge challenge. Figuring out the brain’s wiring diagram is the aim of connectomics. It’s done at many scales: from the “super highways” linking brain areas down to individual cells and their connections. This video shows how, for the… read more
