A Mighty (Small) Mouse Brain Map

January 2016
Discover;Jan/Feb2016, Vol. 37 Issue 1, p56
The article reports the publishing of a 3D reconstruction of a mouse's neocortex, a minuscule portion of its brain, in July 2015 and the process, and notes the discovery that branches of neurons seek out each other to connect rather than synapsing with their immediate neighbours as believed.
