Didn't know the brain cortex could be so awesomely beautiful!

I think the cerebellum is one of the prettiest parts of the brain (for basic anatomy, go here). This is an image of the cerebellum showing purkinje cells in yellow and their outputs (axons that will.

So this is an amazing thing we talked about in bio the other day. It’s a method called Brainbow. It’s really hard to track neurons when they can get so long and tangly, as you can see in this light microscopy of a mouse hippocampus, so scientists can mark each neuron with a different color of fluorescence via transgenes that produce fluorescent proteins. What a brilliant solution!

" - Harvard scientists use a genetic technique that enables them to visualize complete neuronal circuits in unprecedented detail, by using multiple distinct colors to label individual neurons.
