Transparent Brains

It is that time of year again - the usual 'ten things' run-downs [click-bait] are being replaced by 'ten best of 2013' lists. 'Tis the season to ignore.
However, I did find this hidden amongst one such list. I remember the Nature article this is based on, but I missed the accompanying video regarding the CLARITY technique: removing lipids from the brain to expose its connections. The result is a transparent brain map. Prepare to sit slack-jawed through this insane video. The advances made in neuroscience this year are staggering.
