This is what a new connectomics dataset looks like when you are going through and annotating it. Annotating means following each one of those thin processes from the neuron through the complex tangle of “wires” and finding all the connections to learn how neural circuits are composed. Each one of those blue dots is a circle “drawn” by the annotator and the tiny orange dots are synaptic connections.
The danger of this is that you can get sucked in when annotating and before you know it, an entire day is gone. Pulling yourself away to write papers and grants has to happen… but not yet.
