3D reconstructions of brain areas of the clonal raider ant Ooceraea biroi

An ongoing project, I am building 3D reconstructions of ant brains using confocal micrographs and a variety of staining techniques. The ultimate goal will be a reference map of brain neuropils for use in neuroscience and comparative anatomy. I currently have a draft model as well as detailed models of the antennal lobes.
