The Deisseroth lab has done it again! This is an amazing technical advance that can revolutionize the way we do histology and microcircuitry studies. Also, this will be very relevant for human postmortem research, as it will allow better 3-D understanding of the local connectivity. The pictures are very impressive, although I have some potential concerns with the antibody penetration, at least in some cases. In addition, it is noteworthy that this technology will require additional, non-trivial investment in equipment, and it might be (at least initially) best suited for core facilities.
