The superimposed planes refer to transverse (red), sagittal (green) and coronal (blue) digital sections shown in panel (b), (c) and (d) respectively. (b-d) Maximum intensity projections of 40 µm thick slabs. Scale bars, 1 mm. (e, f) 10 × magnification of the regions highlighted by the yellow boxes in panels (b) and (d). The lookup table saturates two percent of pixels for better visibility.
