Mapping the Brain

Ever wondered about the challenges of modern brain research?

Centuries ago, Santiago Ramón y Cajal drew individual neurons and inferred their connections1. Decades ago, researchers reconstructed the nervous system of a simple organism, the thread worm C. elegans2.

Today, the neuronal connectivity of the mammalian brain is investigated to an extent, yet down to a level of detail unimaginable before. One of the main challenges is the sheer amount of data required to address this task.
