More precise mapping of how individual neurons interact in the brain
Researchers at the UNC School of Medicine have used new deep-brain imaging techniques to link the activity of individual, genetically similar neurons to particular behaviors of freely moving mice.
Each image is of the same exact neurons of a genetically defined group of cells. But some (left) fire while mice search for food; others (right) fire while the mice eat food. Scale bars, 100 micrometers. (Credit: Garret Stuber, PhD)
