A Three-Dimensional Atlas of the Brain

Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich are developing a 3-D model of the human brain. In order to do this, they analyse thousands of ultrathin histological brain slices using microscopes and advanced image analysis methods, and subsequently reconstruct them in 3-D on a computer. In the long term, the data obtained will improve understanding of how the brain works and enable earlier diagnosis and better treatment of disorders.
