Neural imaging benefits from optical access to widespread brain areas. A recent study (Ghanbari et al. Nat. Commun. 2019;10;1500) introduces See-Shell, a transparent polymer skull that reveals the entire dorsal cortex in mice. See-Shells are 3D-printed, customizable, and modifiable for combined neural recording and manipulation, offering advantages for high-resolution, multiscale measures of in vivo brain function.
