Building of meso-scale brain image

Building of meso-scale brain image

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 meso-scale of the brain analogous to the map view of Google Earth. The scale could be useful in studying how the brain computes.
