Tissue sections of rat brain were made on a microtome, fixed and stained with a nuclear dye. The tissue section was then imaged on a confocal microscope. The images were then put together as a 3D projection. This 3D projection was then made into a rotational movie for easy observation.
The movie below shows the 3D projection as a rotating movie
The movie below has been enhanced for 3D visualization by Anaglyph techniques (red and green glasses). If you have 3D glasses please wear them for the best results.
