Idea of the day: Neuron coloring

Here’s a new blog series: Ideas of the day. I’ll share a quick thought or revelation that I’ve arrived at recently. Not every day, as the title implies, but “Idea two or three times a week” simply won’t do.

In the late 1800s Camillo Golgi invented stains that could reveal details of individual neurons. I want to see a scientist who colors neurons to write a secret message explaining why he’s been murdered, or a treasure map leading to the secret of the Higgs boson or something. It would be like National Treasure, but with bio science.
