NEW YORK--Scientists have created a detailed, three-dimensional wiring diagram of the mouse brain. That should help researchers seek clues about how the human brain works in health and disease.
It's the first brain-wide wiring diagram for a mammal at such a level of detail. While it doesn't reveal every connection between each of the rodent's 75 million brain cells, it shows how parts of the brain are connected.
