Hybrid microscopy tech produces sharper imagery of the brain's finer details

While the product hasn't yet left the lab testing stage, scientists in Italy have developed a hybrid microscope imaging system meant to produce far sharper views of the brain's neural pathways. They dubbed their system "confocal light sheet microscopy." The machine combines high speed, single-plane imaging of multiple sample sections with a second concept that uses filters to remove scattered background light that can cause blurriness, lead researcher Francesco Pavone said in a statement. Details are published in the journal Optics Express. Release
