For best viewing, we recommend selecting "No Shadow" and adjusting the contrast and transfer function to best visualize nerve fibers and tissue anatomy.



Mouse Heart, dorsal surface [78MB]

3D confocal stack (1200 ┬Ám z-stack) of the dorsal side of cleared mouse heart rendered transparent with the iDISCO protocol and stained with PGP9.5 to reveal innervation pattern.




Mouse Heart, whole [447MB]

3D confocal stack of the whole cleared mouse heart rendered transparent with the iDISCO protocol and stained with PGP9.5 to reveal innervation pattern. Image quality is highest on the ventral surface which was closest to the objective during imaging.
