Chapter 49. GPU-Accelerated Brain Connectivity Reconstruction and Visualization in Large-Scale Electron Micrographs
Won-Ki Jeong, Hanspeter Pfister, Johanna Beyer and Markus Hadwiger
49.1. Introduction
The reconstruction of neural connections to understand the function of the brain is an emerging and active research area in neuroscience. With the advent of high-resolution scanning technologies, such as 3-D light microscopy and electron microscopy (EM), reconstruction of complex 3-D neural circuits from large volumes of neural tissues has become feasible. Among them, only EM data can provide sufficient resolution to identify synapses and to resolve extremely narrow neural processes. Current EM technologies are able to attain resolutions of three ...
