Mapping Worm Nervous Systems Just Got a Bit Easier

The central DNA-containing cell bodies of C. elegans neurons are shown with the three fluorescent colors used in the genetically modified strain of C. elegans developed by the research team. Note how neighboring cells are different colors. Successfully annotated neurons are labeled with letters and cells whose identity could not be annotated are labeled with numbers. Not all 302 C. elegans neurons are present in this image. Credit: Toyoshima et al., 2020.
