Google and Harvard University have released the largest imaging dataset of brain tissue ever collected and reconstructed. The dataset, known as H01, contains 3D renderings of 50,000 cells, 130 million synapses, and hundreds of millions of neural cells from a 1.1 millimeter cube of brain tissue in the temporal lobe. According to Google, researchers have already discovered new cell types and brain signals using the dataset.

Get the data.
