Neuroscientist have been putting their energy for years in the network inside the brain matrix. Scientists have now gone down to the scale of individual neurites. Now can we determine the direction of signal traveling through axon and its connection to next axon with diffuse MRI based synapse-scale imaging technology. This will define the cellular basis of the actual MRI signal reducing the scanning time which is 40hrs at the moment. With improvements to the hardware, they hope to bring this time down to the point where it becomes more practical to image living, breathing brains in the lab.

or in the market place,
let the spirit in you move your lips
and direct your tongue.
Let the voice within your voice
speak to the ear of his ear;
For his soul will keep the truth of your heart
as the taste of the wine is remembered
When the color is forgotten and the vessel is no more.
