Description: Large-scale brain imaging and mapping at microscopic resolution is feasible with intrinsic optical contrasts.  Serial optical coherence scanner, which combines a multi-contrast optical coherence tomography and a tissue slicer, distinguishes white matter and gray matter and visualizes nerve fiber tracts that are as small as a few tens of micrometers.  Axonal birefringence highlights the location and myelination of nerve fibers, while the axis orientation contrast indicates the fiber alignment in the plane...
