Scientific community (and Twitter) buzzing over Stanford's see-through brain

Yesterday's announcement about Stanford scientists developing a process that renders tissue, specifically a mouse brain, transparent spurred a significant amount of excitement among both the scientific community and general public. We've captured the reactions in tweets, blog posts, videos and quotes from new articles on our Storify page.

Among the video content is an interview with Karl Deisseroth, MD, PhD, explaining the work, a fly-through of a complete mouse brain using fluorescent imaging, and commentary from Michelle Freund, PhD, a project officer in the National Institute of Mental Health Division of Neuroscience and Basic Behavioral Science, discussing the significance of the work. Mixed in with the videos are remarks from experts about how the breakthrough will advance the field of neuroscience and other research applications and candid comments from Twitter users. We hope the collection provides a broader perspective on the research and its potential to revolutionize cell biology.
