Title: A fish on the hunt, observed neuron by neuron

This three-dimensional microscopy image reveals an output neuron of the optic tectum lighting up in response to visual information from the retina. The scientists used this state-of-the-art imaging temore »chnology to learn how neurons in the optic tectum take visual information and convert it into an output that drives action.
