Beautiful Neuron Art

Posted by Zack Lynch

The 2005 winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science's illustration challenge is Graham Johnson of Boulder, Colorado.

"Deep inside the brain, a neuron prepares to transmit a signal to its target. To capture that fleeting moment, Graham Johnson based this elegant drawing on ultra-thin micrographs of sequential brain slices. After scanning a sketch into 3D modeling software, he colored the image and added texture and glowing lighting reminiscent of a scanning electron micrograph."

Wonderful! And since art is the topic, the cover of Neuron depicts the intricacy of neurogenesis.
