More Insights into the CLARITY Technique

CLARITY allows researchers to map projections in neurons by carrying out in-depth 3D imaging on organs and tissues. The brain is one of the best tissues that you can image using this method as it has such a high lipid content. CLARITY allows you to trace pathways of neurons, look at connections, and potentially look at discontinuities between healthy and altered states.
