The brain!

”Researchers have developed a process that renders an intact mouse brain transparent. By replacing the opaque fatty components in the brain with a transparent hydrogel, the wiring and molecular structure of the brain become clear to see with visible light and chemicals. The research opens a door to new imaging techniques that could potentially be applied to human organs.”

Brains are now as clear as Jell-O.

Aren’t we curious to learn more about the brain, the most interesting and fascinating complex thing in the universe!
