On December 2nd, 2009 we began slicing the brain of the amnesic patient H.M. into giant histological sections.
The brain specimen was frozen and sectioned whole during one continuous session that lasted approximately 53 hours. The procedure was (re)designed for the safe collection of all tissue slices brain and for the acquisition of blockface images throughout the entire block.
The procedure will mark the completion of Phase 1 which will include ex vivo MR-imaging, blockface imaging, tissue slicing and cryogenic storage of all histological sections.
