Getting CLARITY: Hydrogel process developed at Stanford creates transparent brain

Combining neuroscience and chemical engineering, researchers at Stanford University have developed a process that renders a mouse brain transparent. The postmortem brain remains whole — not sliced or sectioned in any way — with its three-dimensional complexity of fine wiring and molecular structures completely intact and able to be measured and probed at will with visible light and chemicals.

Funding: The research was supported by the National Institute of Mental Health (grant MH099647); the National Science Foundation; the Simons Foundation; the President and Provost of Stanford University; the Wiegers, Snyder, Reeves, Gatsby and Yu foundations; the DARPA REPAIR program; and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
