New Barcode-Based Tracing Method Uncovers the Logic of Single Neuron Projections

The diversity of single-cell projections from mouse visual cortex revealed by fluorescence-based tracing. Each panel in the background shows the traced axon of a single neuron from the upper layers of primary visual cortex. The grey outlines are the brain borders. The foreground brain contains two traced cells overlaid in different colours. Credit: Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, UCL
