Google publishes largest ever high-resolution map of brain connectivity
Scientists from Google and the Janelia Research Campus in Virginia have published the largest high-resolution map of brain connectivity in any animal, sharing a 3D model that traces 20 million synapses connecting some 25,000 neurons in the brain of a fruit fly. Connectomics, as the field is known, has a mixed reputation in the science world, but the map is undoubtedly a huge technical achievement.
