“If there was really a concerted effort to develop brain preservation technology, it would be easy to have highly reliable hospital brain preservation procedures ready to go in any hospital before the end of the decade. It is all a matter of will.” - Dr. Ken Hayworth, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University

Hayworth suggested that Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscopes (FIBSEM) now permit imaging brain tissue at resolutions approaching 5x5x5nm. voxel size, down to the protein level. “This is more than sufficient resolution to determine all the connectivity and the properties of the synapses that are needed to explain the functionality of the brain circuits,” he said.
