We still lack a detailed map of the anatomical disposition of neurons in the human brain. A complete map would be an important step for deeply understanding the brain function, providing anatomical information useful to decipher the neuronal pattern in healthy and diseased conditions. Here, we present several important advances towards this goal, obtained by combining a new clearing method, advanced Light Sheet Microscopy and automated machine-learning based image analysis. We perform
