Thanks to a 3D image consisting of several trillion pixels, researchers will be able to see how different parts of the brain communicate with each other.

 

Researchers at the Janelia Research Campus in the US state of Virginia, in collaboration with Google, have produced extremely detailed images of the brain of an adult banana fly, which will be of great use in future research.

The researchers sliced one-third of the brain into different layers that are only 20 micrometers thick and, after being scanned, created a 3D image consisting of several trillion pixels. At the same time, 25,000 neurons and 20 million synapses were mapped, making it possible to see how different parts of the brain communicate with each other.

In the clip below we see what the brain looks like:

 

Fortunately, the researchers have chosen to publish all pictures, clips, and resources within the Hemibrain project on the web, enabling both researchers and the public to share the information.

“As a biotechnologist student, I just can’t thank you enough for this resource. It’s absolutely amazing and so incredibly valuable because it gave me a visual and dynamic clue about all the pages I’ve learned in books. I feel like crying with happiness. Thanks.”
