BRAIN Investigators Produce Automated Technique Allowing High Resolution Reconstruction of Mouse Cortex

Dr. Jeff Lichtman and colleagues published a paper in Cell outlining a series of techniques for sectioning, reconstructing, and analyzing a discrete volume of mouse brain tissue with nanometer resolution. Advancing the automated collection and processing of cortical tissue at the nanometer scale, this project stems from a collaborative, six-year effort of multiple researchers currently supported by The BRAIN Initiative®.
