Kasthuri et al./Cell) Using an electron microscope, researchers have peered down inside the brain of an adult mouse at a scale previously unachievable, generating dramatic color images at 3-nm-pixel resolution. The research was published Thursday July 30 in an open-access paper in the journal Cell. Focusing on a small area of the mouse brain that receives sensory information from … more…
