Michael Shribak of MBL, and Tim Balmer, postdoc at OHSU’s Vollum Institute, 2012 Grass Fellow and former Pallas Lab member, collaborated to produce these beautiful images of unstained, transparent mouse brain slices. The paper describing the polychromatic polarization microscopy method that yielded these colorful images was recently published at Nature.com/ Scientific Reports.
