To overcome the aberration encountered in super-resolution imaging of thick tissue, we used a single-wavelength Bessel lightsheet microscope optimized for refractive-index matching with clarified specimens. We resolved nanoscopic Dopaminergic neurons distribution across an intact Drosophila brain (3.64 x 107µm3) with high imaging speed (436 µm3/sec). Maneuvering the high throughput (one Drosophila brain per day), huge data can be accessed to provide solid statistical basis for neurobiology.
