Inside look at a fly brain!

2559

For the first time, scientists imaged a complete adult fly brain, allowing them to follow single neurons through the brain.
Using high-speed electron microscopes, the researchers captured 21 million images using 7,050 brain slices. The images enable them to track connections between neurons, a step towards mapping the fly’s entire brain circuitry. Studying the connections could lead to insights on fly behaviour.
