In a piece of brain tissue smaller than a dust mite (measuring 2% of 1mm), there are thousands of brain cell branches and connections. Researchers from Harvard University in Boston have mapped them all in a new study appearing in Cell. They find some unexpected insights about how the cells talk to each other, and you can see the extraordinary complexities they discovered by watching the video above. You can read the full paper at Cell.com.
