A new imaging technique may help scientists study the function of the entire nervous system. They've found a way to overcome some of the limitations of light microscopy by capturing brain activity with sculpted light.

Today's neuroscience aims to understand how an organism's nervous system processes sensory input and generates behavior. Yet actually achieving this goal isn't easy. Researchers have to create detailed maps that show how the nerve cells are wired up in the brain in addition to gathering information ...
