    Response to E-Letter by D. Mayerich et al.

    We are glad to have the opportunity to explain the differences between our MOST technique and the KESM technique we referenced in our Report. KESM, developed by Brain Networks Laboratory at Texas A&M University, is one of the techniques for imaging the brain architecture (1, 2). As cited in our Report, KESM performs imaging and sectioning simultaneously. The KESM...

    We would like to express several concerns about the Report "Micro-optical sectioning tomography to obtain a high-resolution atlas of the mouse brain" by A. Li et al. (3 December 2010, p. 1404). The major claims of their paper appear to be a duplication of work previously published by our lab. Although the authors cite one of our papers in passing, they claim to have developed the...
