‘Brainbow’

Full Text:

Scientists at Harvard University’s Center for Brain Science are using new imaging techniques to look at the brain with more clarity. Pictured at left are neurons that have been marked with different fluorescent proteins in order to see individual cells creating a “brainbow.” Color coding the neurons allows the scientists to trace the longer pathways that interconnect different regions of the brain.
