Frontier Utopia
Inside the thin line between Defense and Creation, on the fringes of Humanity, there is an open space - of promise, of survival, of becoming - just outside of reach.

See-Through Brain Made Possible by Neuroscientists

Biology Guild: Stanford University scientists have found a way to make see-through mouse brains: You take the brain out of the mouse, soak it in chemicals for a couple of days, and voila! It becomes transparent.

That’s not just a parlor trick. It lets scientists see both anatomical and chemical details in their natural, three-dimensional setting. And how big of a deal is that?

During the development of the process called CLARITY, “I burned and melted more than a hundred brains,” said Kwanghun Chung, the primary author of the Stanford paper. Now “I have a transparent liver, lungs and heart.” The team was lead by bioengineer and psychiatrist Karl Deisseroth.

This research was conducted at the Deisseroth Lab at Stanford University.
