    Popularization of super-resolution imaging techniques has allowed cell biologists to probe cell structure and function in previously unattainable detail. These methodologies continue to evolve, with new improvements that allow tailoring the available techniques to a particular need and application. This collection showcases primary research articles, reviews and protocols and highlights these recent developments by exemplifying the new, interesting applications of super-resolution microscopy as well as related tool development.

    For several decades, the neuroscience community has endeavored to understand how the brain controls our perception of the world and how we interact with it. The molecular, cellular and circuit-level mechanisms that underlie these processes have been investigated primarily in animal models. Noninvasive methods such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) have allowed neuroscientists to complement these findings with measures of human brain responses to complex stimuli and behaviors. Nature Neuroscience presents a special issue highlighting considerations and recent developments in noninvasive techniques that improve our understanding of neural measurements in humans, bridging the gap between human and animal research in neuroscience.
