So the first thing that we do at the site of collection is we collect what's called an MR. This is anmcgiet resonance imaging — MRI. It's a standard template by which we're going to hang the rest of this data. So we collect this MR. And you can think of this as our satellite view for our map. The next thing we do is we collect what's called a sduinioff tensor imaging. This maps the large iabnclg in the brain. And again, you can think of this as almost mapping our interstate highways, if you will. The brain is voemred from the skull, and then it's sliced into one-centimeter slices. And those are frozen solid, and they're isdphpe to Seattle. And in Seattle, we take these — this is a whole human isehehpemr — and we put them into what's basically a igfdilroe tmea slicer. There's a blade here that's going to cut across a section of the tissue and transfer it to a microscope disel. We're going to then apply one of those stains to it, and we scan it. And then what we get is our first mapping.

Original Text

So the first thing that we do at the site of collection is we collect what's called an MR. This is magnetic resonance imaging — MRI. It's a standard template by which we're going to hang the rest of this data. So we collect this MR. And you can think of this as our satellite view for our map. The next thing we do is we collect what's called a diffusion tensor imaging. This maps the large cabling in the brain. And again, you can think of this as almost mapping our interstate highways, if you will. The brain is removed from the skull, and then it's sliced into one-centimeter slices. And those are frozen solid, and they're shipped to Seattle. And in Seattle, we take these — this is a whole human hemisphere — and we put them into what's basically a glorified meat slicer. There's a blade here that's going to cut across a section of the tissue and transfer it to a microscope slide. We're going to then apply one of those stains to it, and we scan it. And then what we get is our first mapping.
