Novel microscopy method offers sharper view of brain's neural network

Light-sheet based microscopy (LSM), also known as single plane illumination microscopy (SPIM), is a state-of-the-art microscope imaging method in which a biological sample is illuminated with a thin sheet of light - provided by a laser beam narrowed to just a few microns across - coming from the side rather than from above or below as with traditional light sources.
