Serial block face scanning electron microscopy
Serial block-face scanning electron microscopy was originally developed to analyze connectivity of axons in the brain, but has found wide applicability for many types of biological samples. Conventional microscopy cannot resolve some cellular structures, and does not capture three-dimensional features of the sample. The connectivity of local networks of neurons is an example of information that could be lost in a biological tissue under an electron microscope or a light microscope.
