high-energy X-ray image thick brain section

A "navigational map view" of a section of a mouse brain. Like the map view of an Earth imaging program, this image of a brain section takes cues from actual imaging performed with highest-energy X-rays at a synchrotron and turns them into a graphic depiction. The imaging concentrates on a mesa-scale of the brain analogous to the map view of Google Earth. The scale could be useful in studying how the brain computes.
