A technique that turns entire human organs transparent could help researchers study connections and signals in the entire brain. Previously, scientists could only study connections in the brain in microscopic detail, requiring them to piece together the bigger picture in a simulation. Using the new technique, dubbed CLARITY, researchers hope they can study complex neuron networks in the brain, allowing them to see the bigger picture at the same time.
