Just 1 cubic millimeter of human brain tissue packs about 50,000 neurons, each of which form some 6,000 connections with their neighbors. Traditional techniques require researchers to go through 2-D computer images of stained neurons, constantly rotating the view to see what’s behind a neuron’s branches.
