Determination of structure provides important insights into function at all scales. This ancient principle was established initially for large structures like bridges and skeletons and more recently for cells and molecules. New imaging technologies make it possible to determine molecular, cellular, tissue and organ structure with unprecedented resolution and visualize changes causing/associated with changes in function. State-of-the-art imaging at the molecular, cellular, circuit, whole animal (rodent) and whole animal (primate) scales will be discussed, addressing the challenges of bridging spatial and temporal scales.
