Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This is a short review that introduces recent advances of neuroanatomy and transgenic technologies. The anatomical complexity of the nervous system remains a subject of tremendous fascination among neuroscientists. In order to tackle this extraordinary complexity, powerful transgenic technologies are continually being developed, improved upon and used in the study of the broad ranges of questions. In this research topic, we are focusing on the application of transgenic technology to neuroanatomical questions and have collected up-to-date reviews and original articles that demonstrate the versatility and power of transgenic tools in advancing our knowledge of the nervous system.
