A new marking technique, known as multicolor RGB tracking, allows individual brain cells to be encoded which helps improve our understanding of how the brain works has been developed by scientists from the University of Southampton. The cells can be marked with a heritable color mark generated by a random combination of the three basic colors (red, green and blue).

Lead researcher Dr. Diego Gomez-Nicola said, "With this technique, we have proved the effective spatial and temporal tracking of neural cells, as well as the analysis of cell progeny. This innovative approach is primarily focused to improve neuroscience research, from allowing analysis of clonality to the completion of effective live imaging at the single-cell level. We predict that the use of multicolor RGB tracking will have an impact on how neuroscientists around the world design their experiments. It will allow them to answer questions they were unable to tackle before and contribute to the progress of understanding how our brain works."
