Largest network of cortical neurons

Largest network of cortical neurons

Neuroscientists have constructed a network map of connections between cortical neurons, traced from a ~100 terabytes 3D data set. The data were created by an electron microscope in nanoscopic detail, allowing every one of the “wires” to be seen, along with their connections. Some of the neurons are color-coded according to their activity patterns in the living brain.
