Whole-Brain Analysis of Cells and Circuits by Tissue Clearing and Light-Sheet Microscopy


In this photo essay, we present a sampling of technologies from laboratories at the forefront of whole-brain clearing and imaging for high-resolution analysis of cell populations and neuronal circuits. The data presented here were provided for the eponymous Mini-Symposium presented at the Society for Neuroscience's 2018 annual meeting.
