Creating a blueprint for cortical connectivity

January 29, 2019 by

Taking the first step towards actualizing a blueprint of the brain, researchers have developed a novel technique capable of tracing intricate neural connections with unprecedented sensitivity. By innovatively combining cutting-edge genetic tools with the established technique of monosynaptic tracing, scientists have created a powerful new tool named intersectional monosynaptic tracing (iMT), capable of unraveling the elaborate circuits within the brain.
