Amazing glass brain fly-through, the effects of cocaine, and more…

1. Glass brain fly-through

“This is an anatomically-realistic 3D brain visualization depicting real-time source-localized activity (power and “effective” connectivity) from EEG (electroencephalographic) signals. Each color represents source power and connectivity in a different frequency band (theta, alpha, beta, gamma) and the golden lines are white matter anatomical fiber tracts.”

2. 3-D tour of intact mouse brain

“CLARITY makes possible this 3D tour of an entire, intact mouse brain. It was imaged using a fluorescence technique that previously could only be performed with thinly-sliced brain tissue, making it difficult to relate micro-level findings to macro-level information about wiring and circuitry.”

3. Neurotransmitter synapse 3D animation

4. How does cocaine affect the brain?

“This CGI animated sequence demonstrates how cocaine effects the user’s brain.”
