Podcast Episode 93 l A 3D Map of the Human Brain

A 3D Map of the Human Brain has been created by a collaboration between Harvard researchers and Google Research analysing 1,400 terabytes of data.

This image displays a single human neuron (white) and all of the axons from other neurons that connect to it. The blue threads are inhibitory axons, while the green ones are excitatory axons. Neurons are the cellular building blocks of the nervous system. Google Research & Lichtman Lab/Harvard University
