Scientists Create See-Through Rodents for Brain Science


Until now, scientists couldn’t see individual nerve cells in place in a whole mouse brain. But a new technique can now turn the entire bodies of small animals transparent, allowing scientists to trace the paths of nerve cells and blood vessels from nose to tail. 


The new tool, published today in Nature Methods, is the first to offer such a detailed view of individual cells in an intact body. It allows researchers to better understand how the nervous system is assembled, and how injuries or illnesses can mess with this circuitry. It also drastically reduces the amount of time it takes to map tissues of a mouse brain from the conventional electron microscope method which could take decades to map a whole rodent brain.
