The movie shows the 3D reconstruction of 240 serial brain section images of the vervet monkey covering the visual cortex region. The images were obtained with polarization microscopy (3D-Polarized Light Imaging, 3D-PLI), which reveals the nerve fiber architecture at microscopic scales in both deep white matter and (sub-/)cortical brain regions.
