Last year in 2012, Dr. Karl Desseiroth and colleagues from Stanford University published their technology, called CLARITY, in Nature, the most prestigious scientific journal in the world. CLARITY marks the start of a new chapter in brain imaging. Imagine being able to see through the brain in such a way that you can actually see neurons connect to each other. The YouTube video I have posted below describes their work which is truly exciting. Think about what this means for brain recovery and neuroplasticity research!!
