So this is an amazing. It’s a method called Brainbow. It’s really hard to track neurons when they can get so long and tangly, as you can see in this light microscopy of a mouse hippocampus, so scientists can mark each neuron with a different color of fluorescence via transgenes that produce fluorescent proteins. What a brilliant solution!

" - Harvard scientists use a genetic technique that enables them to visualize complete neuronal circuits in unprecedented detail, by using multiple distinct colors to label individual neurons.
