LMB 365 – Day 6

Day 6 of #LMB365 is provided by Alex Bates @as_bates in the group of Greg Jefferis @gsxej who are working on circuits in the brain of the fruit fly Drosophila Melanogaster. The data was first collected by Ann-Shyn Chiang’s lab in Taiwan and categorised by scientists at the LMB. The image shows over a thousand neurons from the fly’s ‘instinct centre’, which is similar to the human amygdala, and how they spread across the brain.
