I found this article really interesting from the title to the very end. Neuroscientists from Japan have created an inexpensive cocktail of chemicals with which they can turn a dead brain’s grey matter into a translucent gel. By soaking the brain in this mixture, which they call Scale, the grey matter of the brain becomes transparent leaving a clear view into the inside of the brain. While they have only used it on a mouse brain thus far the research team hopes to move forward and create a map of the connections inside a mouse brain. Ultimately the goal is to use this method to create a similar map of the connections inside the human brain without the need to slice the brain as researchers do currently.
A translucent brain would be something amazing to see I think. I’d go to that exhibit over just about any I can think of.
