New X-ray microscopy technique enables comprehensive imaging of dense neural circuits

Monday, September 14, 2020 - 12:41 in Biology & Nature

A new x-ray microscopy technique could help accelerate efforts to map neural circuits and ultimately the brain itself. Combined with artificial intelligence-driven image analysis, researchers used XNH to reconstruct dense neural circuits in 3D, comprehensively cataloging neurons and even tracing individual neurons from muscles to the central nervous system in fruit flies.
